Governor Oliver Hazard Perry Throck Morton
War-time governor of the state of Indiana. Ran the state like a dictator. Staunchly Republican. Staunchly supported President Lincoln and the northern war effort. When the Indiana State Legislature, composed primarily of Democrats, refused to provide funding in support of troops and arms for the northern armies, Governor Morton sent the Legislature home and refused to call it back into session throughout the war. He was still able to provide more than his share of support in both men and arms by seeking private donations from rich Hoosiers and more than meeting his enlistment quotas by mustering volunteer soldiers. He was constantly meddling in affairs involving Indiana soldiers, but his support new no bounds and Lincoln and the northern generals just looked the other way while Governor Morton did what he felt he needed to do. He was a definite thorn in the side of the Rebels, and of Democrats, whom he basically looked upon as no better than traitors.
