Product Details:

"An outrageous insult to the women of New Orleans!" When Benjamin Butler's Union army occupied New Orleans, insults became weapons (one woman reportedly dropped the contents of a chamber pot on Admiral Farragut). New Orleans women attacked the Union soldiers first and General Butler answered with Order No. 28, a proclamation stating that women who continued to insult the Union soldiers would be treated as if a prostitute. This broadside includes the text of Butler's Proclamation and an appeal to Southern men to avenge the outrageous insult to the women of New Orleans.
