History of the Butterfly, Part 43: General Winfield Scott

Winfield Scott was a success!  By golly, was he a success!  His memoirs (two volumes) were written by “Himself.”

Scott referred to Himself in the third person:  “Scott preceded the detachments…” etc.  Winfield Scott is a part of the history of the butterfly, as it relates to Poweshiek.

Winfield Scott was the longest-serving General in the United States Army, and was at one time an unsuccessful candidate for President of the United States.
