Clay, who was U.S. Ambassador to Russia during much of the 1860's. He was later commissioned an officer in the Union Army.These are two scrapbooks kept during the Civil War by William Cassius Goodloe. Clippings include messages sent to Congress by Presidents James Buchanan and Abraham Lincoln just before war broke out, and 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 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.Albert, Prince Consort of Victoria, Queen of Great Britain, 1819-1861--Death and burial.Buchanan, James, 1791-1868.Clay, Cassius Marcellus, 1810-1903.Davis, Jefferson, 1808-1889.Goodloe, William Cassius, 1841-1889.Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865--Assassination.Serfdom--RussiaDiplomats.Politicians.Antietam, Battle of, Md, 1862.Bull Run, 1st Battle of, Va, 1861.Kentucky--Politics and government--1861-1865.Diplomatic and consular service, American--Soviet Union.United States--History--Civil War, 1861-1865--Foreign public opinion.United States--Politics and government--1861-1865.Clippings.Scrapbooks.
