The Civil War in the East

CSA Flag C.S.A. - Army of Northern Virginia

Longstreet's Command

Major General James Longstreet


Confederate law did not yet authorize Army Corps, so Longstreet as senior division commander was given informal command of a wing of the army. His division of six brigades was divided into two temporary divisions under senior brigadiers Jones and Kemper. Hood continued as senior brigadier to command the division of Whiting, who was on sick leave, while Brigadier General Charles Evans' newly-arrived brigade of South Carolinians reported directly to Longstreet.
