Was James Longstreet for slavery?

No. Although Longstreet was raised by his uncle, who was a state's rights advocate, James Longstreet did not support slavery. It is believed that the Longstreet family owned some slaves, but there is no evidence that James Longstreet himself ever owned a slave. Longstreet was a career military man and thought slavery was an evil institution. He mainly joined the Confederacy because the state of Alabama paid for his schooling at West Point and felt that he owed them. After the war, he became a Republican and actively supported civil and voting rights for African-Americans, which angered many Southerners. He spoke out against racism and did everything he could to end white supremacy. When he lived in Louisiana, President Grant (who was a very close friend to Longstreet since their days at West Point) allowed Longstreet to use African-American troops to stop the the violence there.
