The Civil War in the East

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

Kershaw's (McLaws') Division

Brigadier General Joseph B. Kershaw


McLaw's Division returned with the First Corps from Tennessee to the Eastern Theater in mid-April. It was under Kershaw's command while McLaws awaited the results of a court martial for his actions at Knoxville. McLaws was largely vindicated on May 4, but Lee requested that he be reassigned, and Kershaw took permanent command of the division.
