Longstreet Society seminar at Manassas

Some of you may recall the Picket's two-part report on Confederate Gen. James Longstreet, who spent his last years in Gainesville, Ga.

I find his controversial legacy one of the most fascinating aspects of postwar scholarly and public debate.

The Gainesville-based Longstreet Society is holding its annual seminar Oct. 1-2 at the Manassas battlefield in Virginia. Longstreet was present at both battles there. Society president Richard Pilcher said Longstret's performance at the 1862 clash was among his best.
