THE STORY: When an escaped slave shows up at Fort Monroe demanding sanctuary, General Benajmin Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma—follow the letter of the law or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of U.S. history?
“[BUTLER is] part comedy, part historical drama and part biography, often all at once…Just call it splendid.” —NY Times.
