Benjamin Franklin Butler, 1818-1893, was a lawyer, working class democrat, northern civil war general, congressman, governor, and presidential candidate.  He was loved and hated often at the same time by the same people.  The Lowell Historical Society has gathered cartoons and prints from a variety of 19th century magazines.
