A general Mason Brayman demanded he include a prayer in his services for Lincoln, when Elder refused , he had him banished to Vidalia LA

Two weeks later general Lorenzo Thomas, who was Brayman's superior learned ot it and quickly had it reversed.

Wonder if Brayman was court martialed for abuse of power? Seems a case of a Union general acting like a petty dictator.
