A Letter From General Longstreet

HK,

After all I had hear and read about you I realized this past weekend that the information was inaccurate that I had heard and read. People cannot accurately put into words what GOOD you are truly doing to preserve the history and heritage of this country. You are correcting a multitude of errors in the history of the country that people are now only beginning to see and acknowledge through your work and efforts.

Currently with our organization (Lee’s Lieutenants Headquarters Army of Northern Virginia) we have Kathy Pence doing research on the Black Confederate Soldier. She is currently searching the Confederate pension records and correlating that to the census records to find as many Black Confederate Soldiers as she can in Virginia. My goal is to place this information on our website www.leeslieutenants.com along with its sources for all who visit our site to view and understand the truth that Blacks also fought for the Confederacy and played a major role in the war for the Southern cause.

As I mentioned at Dixie Days, I am willing to travel to help promote your efforts. If there is a time when you wish to have General James Longstreet present with you and I can work it out with work and prior commitments I shall be there in any capacity you desire.

Your faithful servant,
James Longstreet
General CSA
