Excerpt from Life and Public Services of Major-General Butler (Benjamin F. Butler): The Hero of New Orleans

Maryland, and assigning General Butler to the command. Few who had occasion to visit the ancient town during the latter days of April, 1861, will forget the interview which they were compelled to have with the General Corn manding before they could walk at will beyond the walls of the Naval Academy grounds. Seated in a large room in the main school-building, surrounded by his staff and numerous clerks, day and night, early and late, could this representative of New England loyalty be found, ever firm in his determination to carry out the regulations be deemed best adapted to the exigency, yet always courteous to the hundreds of visitors who thronged his office. Troops were despatched; actual or suspected rebel emissaries were arrested and examined; extensive purchases of sup plies were made; and citizens were received and their questions or complaints promptly answered.

There was no confusion, no dissatisfaction, and General Butler abundantly proved that he was just the man for the position. While attending to those around him, he also kept his eye upon an important body which had convened at Frederick - the Maryland Legislature - and gave its members to understand that if they passed an ordinance of secession, he would arrest the entire Senate and House of Representatives. The annoyances to which he was subjected were sufficient to cause a less energetic officer to fail, but there is only one instance on record of his having lost his temper. A correspondent of a newspaper, who, finding the hotels full and the ¿oors of the numerous buildings of the Academy covered with weary soldiers, came at midnight to the General's room and besought him to designate the place where he could sleep that night. The answer he received, and which doubtless he to this day remembers, was as follows Sir, I have done te-day about every thing that a man ever did in this world, but I am not going to turn chambermaid.
