Confederate States ArmyArmy of Northern Virginia


July 1862 • August >

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.
