History of the administration of the Department of the Gulf in the year 1862: with an account of the capture of New Orleans, and a sketch of the previous career of the general, civil and military. Eneral Benjamin Butler's behavior as commander of Union occupation forces in New Orleans for only eight months in 1862 spawned an evil, enduring reputation among southerners that was rivaled during the Civil War only by that of Gen. William Sherman after his scorched-earth march across Georgia.
Labeled "Beast Butler" for his brutish physical appearance and for his harsh policies in New Orleans-especially his infamous "Woman's Order"-Butler is characterized by historians as a P. Barnum-type, headline-grabbing showman for his tumultuous military and political life. This item is in the category "Books & Magazines\Antiquarian & Collectible".
