The Swope Manor Bed & Breakfast Gallery
This deluxe room with its southern charm is named after Lt. General James "Old Pete" Longstreet who is one of the most notable Confederate commanders of the Civil War. Commanding the First Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia, his men at the battle of Gettysburg would fight at Devils Den, Wheatfield, Peach Orchard as well as the attack of Little Round Top. My old war Horse as Gen. Lee called him, Longstreet on July 3rd was the lead commander of Pickett's Charge(Longstreet's Assault) which is a day that changed the tide of the Civil War. After the war many of Longstreet's decisions and actions were very controversial to southerners and in 1895 he would publish his 800 page memoir titled "From Manassas to Appomattox".
