General James Longstreet

From Manassas to Appomattox
General James Longstreet

According to some, he was partially to blame for the Confederate defeat at Gettysburg; according to others, if Lee had followed Longstreet's advice, they would have won that battle. He has been called stubborn and vain; and he has been lauded as one of the greatest tacticians of the Civil War

On April 6, Longstreet's command reached Rice's Station, its farthest point south, where it was blocked by Union XXIV Corps.

After some skirmishing, Longstreet withdrew over the High Bridge during the night toward Farmville.
