General, senator and gubernatorial candidate, William Butler was from a long line of military men. There were Butler men fighting in the Revolutionary War, the Indian War and the Mexican war. General William O. Butler served with General Andrew Jackson and served his country and the state of Kentucky honorably. This portrait of General William O. Butler would be great for anyone researching the General or simply looking for a portrait of a member of the US military in the early-to-mid 1800s.
