Longstreet at Gettysburg

        After the Civil War was over and the soldiers of both sides began to get on with their lives and the history of the war was beginning to be written, there began a great deal of finger pointing as to whose fault certain actions and their outcomes were.  Since General James Longstreet, CSA, had changed his politics and embraced the Republican Party, it was only natural that he would take a lot of criticism from his fellow Confederates. In an attempt to at tell his side of the story, Longstreet wrote his book "From Manassas to Appomattox: Memoirs of the Civil War in America".  The following are three chapters from this book.
