BWW Review: BEN BUTLER: Gloucester General's Pivotal Role in the Civil War Photo BWW Review: BEN BUTLER: Gloucester General's Pivotal Role in the Civil War
by Nancy Grossman - Aug 7, 2019

Gloucester Stage Company presents the Boston area premiere of Richard Strand's BEN BUTLER, a Union army general who was a settler of Gloucester's Bayview neighborhood, a presidential candidate, and the 33rd Governor of Massachusetts. Those achievements came after he retired from the military, where he forged a reputation as a champion of the causes of labor, abolition of slavery, and naturalized citizens. In the play, set in the middle of the Civil War in 1861, Butler faces a moral dilemma, forced to choose between adhering strictly to the law or daring to make a bold move that holds the promise of changing history.
