Confederate States Army * Army of Northern Virginia


< to July August 1862to September >

Commanded by 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.
