As much as it disappointed Purchase secessionists to see Forrest leave, their discomfiture increased with the return of General E. A. Paine, starting in July. Paine ended up portrayed as the worst villain in Purchase history, the region's Robespierre, whose “reign of terror” allegedly included wholesale murder, though by firing squad, not guillotine. To the Purchase's secessionist majority, Paine was the vilest sort of Yankee, an abolitionist, a Republican, a friend of Lincoln, and an egalitarian given to treating African Americans and whites equally.
