 James Longstreet
Most of the corps was absent in North Carolina when the battle of Chancellorsville took place, but Longstreet, now a lieutenant-general, returned to Lee in time to take part in the campaign of Gettysburg.
He has been charged with tardiness in getting into the action, but his delay was in part authorized by Lee to await an absent brigade, and in part was the result of instructions to conceal his movements, which caused circuitous marching.
At this critical moment, as Longstreet in person, at the head of fresh troops, was pushing the attack in the forest, he was fired upon by mistake by his own men and desperately wounded.

 ULYSSES S. GRANT HOMEPAGE - General James Longstreet
Longstreet lives today in two-story house of modern stone, three miles from Gainesville, where, amid his vines and shrubs, he was seen by The Times correspondent.
He was dressed in a long and many colored dressing gown; his white whiskers trimmed in the fashion of Burnside's, and he looked little like the stalwart figure which was in the thickest of the fight during the bloody battles in the late war.
(Note: Longstreet's account of Grant's initial meeting with Julia differs from other primary sources who claim he was not present on that day.) It is needless to say that we saw but little of Grant during the rest of the visit.
