Meet the Author

James Longstreet was one of the Confederacy's most successful generals. Born on January 8, 1821, he was the son of a modest north-Georgia farmer and graduated from West Point. General Robert E. Lee affectionately referred to Longstreet as his "old War Horse," but because of his performance at Gettysburg, combined with his acceptance of the Reconstruction, this Civil War icon remains a figure of controversy.

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.
