Though coming as no surprise, I would like to listen to Genl Butler, when confronted by 3 runaway slaves, use his profound logic and legal brain to twist the Rebs seeking their return into a pretzel then declare the 3 contraband of war. Thus opening the past due floodgates for freedom.
That is just one of the things I'd like to see about Genl. Butler. I'd like to be there throughout Benjamin Butler's Civil War career. Hey, Baltimore, his private fiefdom at Fort Monroe. And, what was his relationship with Lincoln and Grant? Did he really do the "Spoons"? What about that powder ship explosion at Fort Fisher?
A real interesting character indeed.
