Lot 2. Nathaniel P. Banks. ((1816-1894). American politician and soldier, Speaker of the House, Governor of Massachusetts, and a Union general during the American Civil War. He became Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in 1856 and Governor of Massachusetts in 1857. At the outbreak of the civil war, Lincoln appointed Banks as one of the first ‘political’ major generals, over the heads of West Point regulars, who initially resented him, but came to acknowledge his influence on the administration of the war. In 1863 he captured Port Hudson.
