RE: VP Beast Butler?
[I agree, Thomas. Butler's crimes and reprehensible conduct are covered in detail in his own chapter in Walter Cisco's "War Crimes Against Southern Civilians". That book should be required reading for anyone who thinks the Union Army's only mission was a Divine one to free the slaves]// quote

Sadly, there are a lot of untruths that surround the American Civil War. Alongside the myth that the conflict was mainly a Northern holy war to free slaves is the one that Southerners only went to war to defend their home territories and that the preservation of the institution had little or nothing to do with it, which is imo preposterous. A brief perusal of the Secession Ordinances of each of the Confederate states will reveal, in some detail, primarily why they were seceding.

And unfortunately even though the South lost the war militarily, my opinion is that they won control of the historical narrative and continue to win it. The myth of the happy, content slave singing spirituals and devoted to his master is a prevalent one even today, just as prevalent the one of Northern holy warriors.
