Fun Fact: Old War Horse

Fun facts about Reconstruction

During the American Civil War, James Longstreet was one of Robert E. Lee’s favorite generals to the point where he called him his “old war horse”.

He embraced equal rights and supported Reconstruction which made his former comrades and many in the Old South hate him.
