Finally, Louisiana's internal political struggles over electing a civilian government that could be readmitted to the union settled out and elected Michael Hahn, a Republican, as governor.

Hahn was an opponent of secession and collaborated with the Union occupation of Louisiana.

Hahn was inaugurated on March 4, 1864. Shepley then resigned as military governor and was given a new post in Virginia, again serving under Benjamin Butler.
