James Longstreet, From Manassas to Appomattox, 1st ed., in Presentation Binding


In Calf, Presentation Binding



James Longstreet’s from Manassas to Appomattox tells the story of the war in the first person from one of the great generals of American history.

“A combination of reminiscences and rebuttals by a gallant soldier ostracized by his comrades in the reconstruction period; a necessary source for any study of Lee’s army” Nevins I, 122.

“Longstreet’s tome is a milestone of great importance in Confederate literature. [It] allows him to make his case, and at least on some accounts quiets the armchair strategists who have faulted Longstreet too severely. In the main, Longstreet is correct with most of his assertions [and] here provides ample documentation of his close relationships with Lee” (Eicher 277).
