I was never a Butler but some thought of me as a king. I backed Jefferson Davis for the office of president of the Confederacy in 1860 but I eventually became one of his harshest critics who equated him with the devil. During 1865, I lashed out at Robert E. Lee for his support of the enlistment of slaves as soldiers. Who am I?
In 1863, Richmond dentist Dr. Finley Hunt, came up with an invention that caught the attention of Confederate president Jefferson Davis. What was this invention and why did the Confederacy not implement it?
