"The reader will find a truthful picture of the crew of the United States steam-frigate Colorado, which has lately sailed from Boston to join the blockading fleet. The men were all recruited and shipped at Boston, and we understand that an unusual proportion of them are Americans. Their physique goes to show that the race has not degenerated in that part of the country, and that when occasion offers they will do full justice to the reputation which our gallant tars have won in many a fight and on many a sea." Harper's Weekly description of the scene. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Historical , Civil War
