Confederate States Army Army of Northern Virginia * Longstreet’s Command

< to September • October 1862 • to November >

Commanded by Brigadier General John B. Hood (promoted to Major General 10/10)

The brigades of George T. Anderson (formerly D.R. Jones’) and Henry Benning (formerly Toombs’) were transferred from D. R. Jones’ Division when that division was broken up due to Jones’ soon-to-be fatal heart disease. General Whiting, who had finally returned from sick leave, was permanently transfered to an engineering command, freeing Hood for promotion to major general and permanent command of the division.
