RE: VP Beast Butler?
(10-22-2014 04:55 AM)RJNorton Wrote:  Laurie, in Reelecting Lincoln: The Battle For The 1864 Presidency, author John C. Waugh mentions this story. His opinion is that "there is no hard evidence that Lincoln made such an offer to Butler, either directly or indirectly...Lacking sufficient hard evidence, I have downplayed the affair in this narrative." Waugh does talk about some who wanted to dump Lincoln and make Butler president. He quotes one man saying, "In order to save the country you must make Old Ben Butler President."

That book sounds interesting, thanks for the heads up Roger!Wink
