Civil War Pants Saga


I have uncovered startling information concerning a very serious disagreement that took place between Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and James Longstreet. Apparently, Lee was very unhappy with Longstreet's pants. The two exchanged rather caustic letters. This is the first time ever that these documents have been revealed...

"General Longstreet - I'm writing to inform you that your pants suck. I hereby order you to visit the tailor of gen. Pickett. You will have those pants tailored. -Robert Lee


"General A-Hole - I've been in the army all my life and it is my opinion that no tailor can fix these pants. -J.Longstreet"
