Carrollton is a historic neighborhood of Uptown New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, which includes the Carrollton Historic District, recognized by the HISTORIC DISTRICT LANDMARK COMMISSION. It is the part of Uptown New Orleans farthest upriver while still being easily accessible to the French Quarter.It was historically a separate town, laid out in 1833 and incorporated on March 10, 1845.  Carrollton was annexed by New Orleans in 1874 (becoming the city's 16th and 17th Wards), but it has long retained some elements of distinct identity. During the American Civil War, Carrollton soon fell under Union control.
Winters in his The Civil War in Louisiana (1861), reports that soldiers in Carrollton were heavy whiskey drinkers. A young officer complained that one-fifth of the regiment keeps drunk all the time.  Post commander General John W.Phelps permitted the men to drink because he thought that they must have whisky or die of country fever. Butler, from time to time, issued orders forbidding the public sale of liquor. Butler's brother, Andrew J. Butler, who held no official capacity, then petitioned his brother to lift the ban. Andrew Butler monopolized the liquor trade and brought cattle into the area from Texas and flour from the North. Winters describes Andrew Butler as a jolly, fat man who could be as hard as nails where a dollar was concerned. [He] quickly established a monopoly on all groceries, breadstuffs, medicines, and staples brought into [New Orleans].
He seized and operated a city bakery that was the only breadmaking establishment allowed in the city.  Many in New Orleans considered the Butler brothers "on the make, " and persons needing official favors were more likely to succeed if they were on good terms with Andrew Butler.

The American Civil War (also, known by other names) was a civil war that was fought in the United States from 1861 to 1865. As a result of the long-standing controversy over slavery, war broke out in April 1861, when Confederate forces attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina, shortly after U.
President Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated. The nationalists of the Union proclaimed loyalty to the U.

States in February 1861, seven Southern slave states individually declared their secession from the U. To form the Confederate States of America, or the South.The Confederacy grew to include eleven slave states. The Confederacy was never diplomatically recognized by the United States government, nor was it recognized by any foreign country (although the United Kingdom and France granted it belligerent status). The states that remained loyal to the U. (including the border states where slavery was legal) were known as the Union or the North. The Union and Confederacy quickly raised volunteer and conscription armies that fought mostly in the South over four years. The Union finally won the war when General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant at the Battle of Appomattox Court House, followed by a series of surrenders by Confederate generals throughout the southern states. Four years of intense combat left 620,000 to 750,000 people dead, more than the number of U. Military deaths in all other wars combined (at least until approximately the Vietnam War).  Much of the South's infrastructure was destroyed, especially the transportation systems, railroads, mills, and houses. The Confederacy collapsed, slavery was abolished, and 4 million slaves were freed. The Reconstruction Era (18631877) overlapped and followed the war, with the process of restoring national unity, strengthening the national government, and granting civil rights to freed slaves throughout the country.
