Same thing could be said about other Confederate generals, TD. Fitzhugh Lee was US consul general at Havana and then was Major General of Volunteers for the US Army during the Spanish-American War. Rooney Lee became one of Virginia's Representatives represnting the 8th District. Henry Rootes Jackson was a minister to Mexico after the war. Longstreet minister to Turkey. Joe Johnston served in the 46th Congress as a Representative from Virginia representing the 3rd District.
