Reply to General Longstreet's Second paper. by General J. A. Early. General Longstreet is of the opinion that he is a very deeply-aggrieved man, because he has not been permitted, without question, to pronounce that General Lee's strategy in the Gettysburg campaign was very defective; that General Lee had lost his mind when he
rs for what is due to his own shortcomings.
There is again in this second article an allusion to our line of battle having been broken through the advice of General Early.
By this is meant the posting of two of my brigades in a position to protect our left flank, which was very much exposed before the arrival of Stuart's cavalr as but met the fate of all who, not content with receiving the credit justly due them, aspire to honors to which they are not entitled.
In all that I have written in this controversy, my sole purpose has been to vindicate the fame of the great commander of the Army of Northern Virginia and the truth of history.
J. A. Early.
