LATROBE, Osmun (1835-1915) Marylander who began the war as an officer on the staff of D.R. Jones. In the ANV's reorganization after the battle of Antietam, Longstreet requested Latrobe join his staff as AAG and Inspector General. Wounded in the hand at the Battle of the Wilderness, Latrobe recovered enough to accompany Longstreet's ambulance as it took the General off the field. Latrobe continued to serve as part of the inner core of Longstreet's staff and during the final months of the war succeeded Moxley Sorrel as Chief of Staff. Autograph Letter Signed, "Osmun Latrobe" 3p. octavo, on Metropolitan Club stationary, April 19, 1900, it reads "I am so glad you can be at Antietam and Mrs. Longstreet also. The occasion would not be complete without you both. The necessary invitations and programs will be sent in due course by the Secy. I do not think you will have to speak, but everyone will want to see you. I hear constantly from Fremantle since I left him early in the fall of last year. He is retired, and now is quite well. He feels deeply England's difficulty in this South African business, but knows that England MUST win in the end. It is not unlike our struggle…" Docketed on verso in the hand of Longstreet "Latrobe" Fine.
