Confederate Ship Cotton (No. 2) Seized in Red River

JUNE 7TH, 1865:  The USS Ouachita seized  the Confederate ship Cotton (No. 2) and took her to the mouth of the Red River.  She had been purchased by the Confederate Navy but the stipulated payment had not been made and for this reason she was returned to her former owners.

The vessel had been seized because it had been employed in military operations against the United States.
