The thin blue line [electronic resource] : law and order during the Federal occupation of New Orleans, 1862-1865 /
Edwards, Stephen Jay
"The Thin Blue Line" examines how law enforcement during the Union army's capture and occupation of New Orleans pacified the insurgent city, with special emphasis on the army's role as police, civil courts, and municipal government. This thesis also carefully explores the impact which Benjamin Butler's notorious General Order No. 28, or "Woman Order," had on crimes perpetrated by and against women during the Federal occupation.
