Most sources agree that Jackson was all in favor of Lee's dividing the army
to invest Harper's Ferry.
Very few of these sources are first hand. Interestingly, one of the only
first hand sources that show this is that of Longstreet himself. Now, either
Pete recalled it correctly, recalled it incorrectly, or, as he asserts he was
against the move, and felt it was a mistake, perhaps he said Jackson was in
agreement to cast an aspersion. Hmmmm......
