"Ben Butler in New Orleans" by Dale Phillips, Historian and Superintendent at Lincoln Home National Historic Site.

Benjamin F. Butler was a controversial, colorful, and self-aggrandizing  politician who served as a Union general during the Civil War. A state senator in Massachusetts, Butler was a delegate to the 1860 Democratic National Convention, where he supported Jefferson Davis for President.. Always popular, he was nevertheless dogged by charges of corruption, abuse of power, and, when he accepted a general officer's commission from Abraham Lincoln in 1861, incompetence. Even his appearance inspired commentary. A Union staff officer penned in his diary how Butler cut "an astounding figure on a horse! Short, fat, shapeless; no neck, squinting, and very bald headed, and, above all, that singular, half defiant look."

Civil War Trivia



Old "Spoons" Benjamin Butler was ordered shot on sight by Confederate President Jefferson Davis because of his controversial rule as military governor of New Orleans and his treatment of the citizens there. Ironically it was Butler who disrupted the 1860 Democratic convention by voting for his favorite presidential candidate 57 times, US Senator Jefferson Davis.
