James Longstreet (1821-1904) was one of the foremost Confederate generals of the American Civil War and the principal subordinate to General Robert E. Lee, who called him "Old War Horse". Following the war, Longstreet moved to New Orleans. Endorsing Grant for president in 1868, he lost favor with many Southerners. He became major general of the militia of Louisiana and was a Commissioner of Railroads under Presidents McKinley and Roosevelt. Photo taken by Mathew Brady. (Library of Congress).
