    C.S.A. General James Longstreet Autograph Note. Writes "Abraham Lincoln" and signs "Respectfully J Longstreet". Small lined sheet of 5" x 2.25" laid down to a card of 6.5" x 2.5", np, nd. Longstreet writes the words "Abraham Lincoln" in reply to a question noted by the original collector on the card as "Asked Gen Longstreet whom he considered the greatest man during the war." This might seem to be an interesting reply to the question coming from a man who served during the war as chief subordinate to Robert E. Lee. After the war though, Longstreet was the highest-ranking Confederate officer to become a "scalawag" and join the Republican Party, even endorsing his old friend U. S. Grant for president and attending his inauguration, actions that made him unpopular in his native south. Fine condition, traces of a glued photo to the right of the signature could be matted out.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
