​​The Longstreet Society is dedicated to the study and celebration of the life of 
Lt. General James Longstreet, CSA 
and especially his skill and valor as a soldier 
and as commander of the famous old 
First Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia; 
his fervent dedication to the restoration of the
American Union; his love of his
Southern homeland; his advocacy for the ideals of peace and understanding among all

peoples and his belief in the 
​brotherhood of man.
