Longstreet @ Antietam?

In other news, I'm reading "Confederate Goliath" by Rod Gragg. Details the defense of Wilmington and Fort Fisher. Enjoying it so far...I've never been to Wilmington, might have to make a trip.

That is correct. The best defensive position in Lee's main line held by Hill's men suddenly pulled out of line ( after cutting down many yankees ) leaving a big void. Hordes of blue bellies went for it and Ol' Pete directed the artillery and gave them canister with help from Jebs bro in law, Cap or Col. Cooke, who hit the horde in flank, basically saving Lee's Army.

This Gent accepted leadership of Jackson’s Stonewall Brigade after he was mortally wounded at Chancellorsville.
Who was he and what unusual prior history did he have with Ol Jack, his former VMI professor?

Was that Tom Fool's student who had challenged the professor to a duel? Can't remember the name though.

If your ever near Chattanooga, go by Chickamauga Battlefield visitors center and look at the large display of civil war rifles there. Largest display I've ever seen of these kind of rifles. Dave

The battlefield itself is a pretty great place to visit as well

Here’s another:

The Reb General was a warhorse for Robert E Lee then was transferred South and worked under Bragg, long enough to learn Bragg was a bit inept. After being critical of Bragg ( who was Jeff Davis’ buddy) he was essentially released from leadership and rejoined the Southern cause late in the war near the very end.
He was pretty good at Math, too.

James A Walker
At VMI, cadet Walker thought Jackson was questioning his integrity and challenged Jackson to a duel. He was court-martialed and expelled from school.
