Dr Elizabeth Varon, Author of “Longstreet: The Confederate General Who Defied the South”
General James Longstreet is remembered by many as a superb Confederate general during the American Civil War. He also was reviled by generations of Southerners as an apostate—both for criticizing the generalship of Robert E. Lee and becoming a Republican after the South was crushed. On this week’s “Leaders and Legends” podcast, we interview Dr Elizabeth Varon about her terrific study, “Longstreet: The Confederate General Who Defied the South”, and get to the heart of why Longstreet said what he said and did what he did.
