    The CSA didn't use Corps during the maryland campagin And Jackson and Longstreet where not LT. Generals.
    (they each commanded a wing and where Major generals)

    The order to create corps can be found here:

    That picture of Wade Hampton is so clear. Good work!

    And I don't have any evidence for this right now, but Nathan Evans Brigade (Tramp Brigade) was not in any certain division, in most of the war they weren't in any division but just "reporting directly"
    "If we were wrong in our contest, then the Declaration of Independence of 1776 was a grave mistake and the revolution to which it led was a crime. If Washington was a patriot; Lee cannot have been a rebel."

    "I want you to try to teach to your children and to your children's children that ours was not a lost cause. I want you to tell them that we were fighting for the right ..."

    Wade Hampton III

    I'm not going to bother with this one since it would require me to edit every line of text in the post :P . Plus, I put the wings in brackets.
