Wow, what an awesome find!
I always found this interesting. With the hour at hand, it would have only been natural for both men to be concerned with his own destiny. Considering what they had to feel was a likely outcome. I'd say I can easily see why Longstreet would have preferred to fight it out. His faith in Grant's paid off.
While our friend and Longstreet superfan @Eleanor Rose is on her vacation, I hope everyone will post a little something Longstreet-inspired: photos, anecdotes, trivia - anything to show a little love to Ol' Pete!
I am very glad on my first day as a member of this site to comment on my secondfavorite person in the way, Longstreet.I do not know if that was said about Longstreet but it definitely was said about U.S.Grant.He saw a soldier hitting a horse and the soldier was severely punished.
She is away again.How about bringing this thread back for a few little things now and then?
There were at least 7 men with the first name James in Longstreet`s West Point class in their first year. A year later they were only 5 and it apparently stayed like this. When they graduated the three lowest-ranking cadets of the class were all named James (including Longstreet).
