Without Ewell and AP Hill, that left Longstreet as the right hand man. And he played that part admirably even when he disagreed. He was first and foremost a soldier who took orders and did his best to carry them out. He will be one of the portraits in this series but none of the photos I've seen of him are particularly good or clear. I'm going to concentrate on the better photos first.
