Lt.-Colonel Arthur J. Fremantle, Three Months in the Southern States, June, 1863. (search)
General Pickett commands one of the divisions in Longstreet's corps. McLaws, Hood, and Pickett, are the three divisional com-manders or major-generals in Longstreet's corps d'armee. He wears his hair in long ringlets, and is altogether rather a desperate looking character. He is the officer who, as Captain Pickett of the U. S. army, figured in the difficulty between the British. and United States in the San Juan Island affair, under General Harney, four or five years ago. 30th June, 1863 (Tuesday). This morning, before marching from Chambersburg, General Longstreet introduced me to the Commander-in-chief. General Lee is, almost without exception, the handsomest man of his age I ever saw. He is fifty-six years old, tall, broad-shouldered, very well made, well set up-a thorough soldier in appearance; and his manners are most courteous and full of dignity. He is a perfect gentleman in every respect. I imagine no man has so few enemies, or is so universally esteemed.
