PT3024 Longstreet - Winter Camp (Centerville, Virginia February 1863) Print - David Wright $150.00

James Longstreet was born in South Carolina on 8 January 1821. Young “Pete”, as he was called by his family, loved to read the exploits of history’s great military leaders. As a child he dreamed about pursuing a military career, and his father set for him a course of education which would lead him to West Point and a commission in the United States Army. Longstreet was a friendly and popular companion to his fellow officers. The war with Mexico would show that he was a capable combat officer and inspiring leader of men. Despite his promising future (he attained rank of Major by 1858), with secession Longstreet did not hesitate to offer his services to the young Confederacy. Initially commissioned a Lt. Colonel, he was quickly promoted to Brigadier General and commanded a brigade under Beauregard at Manassas. When Lee assumed command of the army he leaned heavily on Longstreet, writing to President Davis that “Longstreet is a Capital solider….I have confidence in him.” Longstreet was given command of the First Corps (Army of Northern Virginia) and promoted to Lt. General. During the course of the war, Lee often accompanied his First Corps commander during troop movements and combat, time and again relying upon his advice and suggestions. Longstreet received much postwar criticism, but the disdain was not shared by his commander. 18” X25” – limited edition – signed by the artist David Wright.
