From Manassas to Appomattox: Memoirs of the Civil War in America is the Civil War memoirs of Confederate Lieutenant General James Longstreet.

Had General Longstreet died on the field, he may have been one of the South’s biggest heroes. However, it was his performance at Gettysburg and arguments with other Southern generals after the Civil War that tarnished his image. After the war, Longstreet was accused of being slow to attack on the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, allowing the Union to man Little Round Top. He also resisted Lee’s order for Pickett’s Charge the next day. The fact that he served in Republican administrations after the Civil War rubbed his former comrades the wrong way, and the Georgian’s criticism of Lee infuriated the Lost Cause advocates who idolized the Virginian commander.

Near the end of his life, Longstreet authored From Manassas to Appomattox, a Civil War memoirs that looked to rebut his critics. Longstreet didn’t avoid his critics, facing them head on by fending off criticisms of his record for the most part, usually including letters written by other officers to his defense. Longstreet also didn’t pull punches; he is critical of everyone who he feels deserves blame at certain points throughout his memoirs, including Lee.

This edition of Longstreet's memoirs include a foreword from Charles River Editors, a Table of Contents, and over 20 pictures and maps of famous Civil War battles like Antietam, Gettysburg, The Wilderness and more.

Beware of these books, Ckarles River Editors and other are giving you small portions of much larger books when after you read their description of the books you expect much much more. Barn and Nob,e should be ashamed for allow such deception to go on. At the very least the description should state the number of pages you are buying, this has eight.

General Longstreet wrote well but the conversion of his book into an eBook is so poorly crafted that reading it is frustrating. Also, there are parts missing. The text jumps from the middle of his family history right into the midst of the first battle of Bull Run. I am back in search of another version.
