Margaret,
 
I suppose it depends on how we want to bound the question.
 
Best Regards,
Al Mackey

Esteemed  GDG Member Contributes:
Al-Anything I've read about Longstreet's corps'  mostly unhappy sojourn in 
the West it that its men , from its commander to the  lowliest private, 
ALWAYS considered themselves to be part of the First Corps  of the Army of 
Northern Virginia with most of the corps on temporary  assignment with the Army 
of Tennessee. Their delight on ending the assignment,  rejoining the rest of 
the ANV, and coming back under Lee's command  (understandable. I'm no Lee 
worshiper, but only an extreme masochist wouldn't  be delighted at that 
change.) was overwhelming. 



Regards,  


Margaret
