Author Cory Pfarr gave a detailed reassessment of Confederate General James Longstreet’s oft-criticized performance during the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg. Mr. Pfarr argued that Longstreet’s post-war politics -- joining the party of Lincoln and advocating for reconciliation with the Union -- put him at odds with the majority of former Confederate officers. This made him a target for those seeking a scapegoat to insulate Robert E. Lee from responsibility for the Confederate performance during the battle. The Gettysburg Heritage Center in Pennsylvania hosted this talk. close
