Worldcat notes another book entitled The Tyrant of New Orleans. A Drama, (just 46 pages) published in Atlanta, 1873, but we do not know if that title has any relation to this one.This is a work of fiction. (We have found that the author was also the author of "The Spring Heel'd Jack: The Terror of London, " printed in 1867). The "Tyrant" in this work is Union General Benjamin Butler.
Butler commanded the force that captured New Orleans in 1862. His treatment of women was notorious as shown in Butler's General Order No. If any woman spoke against, insulted, or disrespected an officer or soldier of the United States, she would be regarded as a prostitute. This allowed Union soldier to do as they pleased and created a national sensation and controversy.
