I knew that Lee opposed slavery, though he owned slaves at one time in his life when he inherited his father-in-law's estate, and profited off their services to pay off his father-in-law's debt.  I knew Jackson owned a couple of slaves, but was very generous towards them, and I knew Cleburne opposed slavery.  But what about Longstreet?  I can't find anything about his views on slavery.  Were there any other CS generals who were opposed to the institution?  I would really appreciate some help.

Thanks--Casey
