    Benjamin F. Butler- Georgia-Alabama Investment and Development Company (Georgia)
    A brown and black certificate for five shares issued in 1891 and signed as President by Benjamin F. Butler. Butler served as a General in the Union Army, earning the title "Beast Butler" for his perceived depredations against Southern citizens. Prior to the Civil War he served in both the Massachusetts State House of Representatives and the Massachusetts Senate. He subsequently served a number of terms in the United States House of Representatives. After the Civil War he was elected Governor of Massachusetts, thrice being defeated in unsuccessful attempts to hold and then regain that office. Butler was the Greenback and Anti-Monopolist candidate for the Presidency in 1884. He died while attending a court hearing in Washington, D.C. on January 11, 1893 and is buried at Hildreth Cemetery in Lowell, Massachusetts. Extremely Fine.
