The Civil War in the East

C.S.A. - Army of Northern Virginia - Longstreet's Command

Longstreet's Division

Brigadier General Richard H. Anderson (to 7/14)

         
   
   
         

Longstreet commanded several divisions of the army during the Northern Virginia Campaign. To ease his command burden when the senior brigadier, Richard Anderson was given his own division, Longstreet divided his division between the two next senior brigade commanders, Kemper and Wilcox, giving each three brigades. Although these divisions were both temporary, Longstreet's Division was never reconstituted.
