Turchin bad, very bad man

Athens does not fondly remember Col. Ivan Vasilevitch Turchininoff ("John Basil Turchin"), the only experienced Russian officer to make general in the Civil War. And with the anniversary of the sack of Athens, locals are again remembering this obscure proponent of hard war.

But hard war against rebellion is what you'd expect from an ex-Imperial officer in Federal service. Abolitionism, less so.
