This folder contains a scrapbook of newspaper articles written by J.C. while he was the captain of the armed cruiser "Catopaxi" at the close of the Civil War. He describes his impressions of the effects of the Civil War on the inhabitants of various southern communities, including Norfolk, Virginia and Beaufort, South Carolina, as well as Mexico. One especially interesting article contains his description of services at a "negro church."
