I don't leave tributes to many Union officers, but you were an honorable enemy, a fine General, & a great man. Your actions @ Second Manassas were beyond reproach. The US military has always cashiered men with uncomfortable political opinions, & that's OK if those opinions result in disloyal actions. Yours never did. You always gave our men all they could handle. See "Lee's Lieutenants", vol. 1. Your courtesy to Mrs. Lee merits our thanks & respect. You got a raw deal, & America suffered for it. When you were finally cleared, the Congressional Committee Chairman was our great Joe Johnston--one of life's little ironies. Rest Well, Sir. Deo Vindice.

My MA thesis was on Gen. Henry Warner Slocum, also at Green-Wood. He worked to exonerate Porter after the war, and that was the right thing to do. HOWEVER, for that thesis I read the City University PhD dissertation of the Porter trial. Porter was highly insubordinate and inflammatory in his public writings about both Lincoln and Stanton. Also, like other Democrats in the Army, he was unwilling to prosecute the war with the needed vigor and even ruthlessness required to win it. His court martial was a purge - but I consider it a NECESSARY one, and other Democrats also soon went. He did nothing wrong at 2nd Bull Run, but he needed to go. If he had not been so insulting in his comments there may have been no trial, just dismissal. But exoneration was deserved.
RIP to a fine general.

General-we could have used you later in the war--but politics and the Radicals hatred of your loyal friend Gen. Mcclellan, spelled your doom. You served the U.S. well.
