Fred Sanders uses a smooth, authoritative delivery to describe one of the South's most controversial Confederate generals. At the height of the Civil War, James Longstreet was one of the most tenacious leaders of Confederate troops. With perfect pacing and a tinge of sorrow, Sanders describes Longstreet's reactions to Gettysburg and the South's defeat. After the war, Longstreet moved his family to New Orleans and found resistance and ridicule when he rejected the Lost Cause narrative. Sanders captures Longstreet's melancholy as he joined Louisiana's newly elected integrated postwar government. When white supremacists there took up arms in a coup, Longstreet led the interracial state militia and subdued former Confederates. Sanders's effective and empathetic performance adds significantly to Varon's extensive profile. R.O. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
