Biographical note William Cassius Goodloe (1841-1889) was a Lexington attorney and nephew to Cassius M. Clay. He served as a private secretary to Clay while he was the U.S. Ambassador to Russia. He returned to the United States in 1862 and served in the Union Army. Goodloe died in a duel with Armistead Swope in the Lexington post office in 1889. Scope and Contents The William Cassius Goodloe Civil War scrapbooks (dated 1860-1865; 0.6 cubic feet; 2 items) consists of two scrapbooks filled with newspaper clippings about the Civil War. The newspaper clippings include messages sent to Congress by Presidents James Buchanan and Abraham Lincoln as well as messages and addresses delivered by Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Most of the Civil War clippings relate to political, rather than military events, but the scrapbooks do include newspaper accounts of the battles of Manassas (First) and Antietam. The second volume contains newspaper clippings from British newspapers, which illustrate the diplomatic side of the war. Some articles relate to Russia and Cassius Clay's service there. Important European events of the period are also represented in the scrapbooks, including the liberation of serfs in Russia and the death of Albert, the British Prince Consort. There are also clippings about the assassination and funeral of Abraham Lincoln, and about the 1863 Kentucky gubernatorial race. United States -- Politics and government -- 1861-1865.
