They really did put people on "bread and water" as punishment - and double irons as well!

By order of Commander L. A. Beardslee, Commanding, Private Pitcher who refused to do duty was confined in double irons in the guard house to await further action.

By order of Commander L. A. Beardslee Commanding placed Private Pitcher in solitary confinement on bread and water for five days for refusing to do the duty assigned to him yesterday.



USS Cairo Wrist and Leg Irons:

DOUBLE-IRONED. Both legs shackled to the bilboe-bolts.

Lots of weather details on the Events pages. (I don't generally transcribe them.)
Some sound almost poetic - though I doubt I would feel that way if I were observing first hand!

Clear and cold. Cloudless. Bright starlight.

Vapor visible upon the water.

I began transcribing them when Philip said we could enter them into the Weather tab.  As you have probably noticed "pleasant weather" is used quite a bit. This is a tad subjective. On the other hand, the wind force terminology is usually precise.

By order of Commander L. A. Beardslee, Ensign J. C. Gillmore was placed under suspension for neglect of duty and disobedience of orders.

Punishments are a bit different when you are an officer.
