Confederate General Longstreet- Catholic Convert

General Longstreet is one of my favorite Confederate Generals. He is also one of those men found in both the North and South that jumped into the reunification business of our country with full heart and soul. Those people at times were not too popular. Sadly Longstreet suffered for that as his reputation got unjustly trashed by many of his fellow Southerners.

Post war while in New Orleans he converted too the Catholic faith. That story and indeed that also of his wife are very interesting. American Catholic has the story here.
