Gimme Back My Bullets

Longstreet and Wheeler

In 1902, General Longstreet visited West Point and saw former Confederate General Joe Wheeler, dressed in his blue Spanish-American War uniform. Longstreet said, "Joe, I hope that Almighty God takes me before he does you, for I want to be within the gates of hell to hear Jubal Early cuss you in the blue uniform."
