Collection Historical Note

The Confederate State Congress operated during the “Southern Revolution” from 1861 – 1865. Its main role was to form a new government for the south. The Second Congress of the Confederate States was elected in November of 1863, but only served one year due to the defeat of the Confederacy in 1865. Due to the wartime climate, reports were that the Congress was often rowdy with many altercations between representatives. The First Session of the Second Congress sat from May 2 – June 14, 1864. During this time, Jefferson Davis controlled most of the measures passed, despite heavy criticism, vetoing 39 bills in the year that the congress was in power.
