Documents

Date:
1865-1865

Resolutions (in relation to peace and independence) Richmond, 1865. Confederate House of Representatives, dated January 11, 1865. referred to committee on foreign affairs in order to be printed (by Mr. Miles). A Confederate imprint from the last year of the war featuring a renewed call to arms. The Confederacy had fared poorly in the last several months of the war and were building towards a peace conference with President Lincoln at Hampton Roads, in which they would offer an end to hostilities, along with a recognition of the Southern Confederacy. Lincoln would not approve this. Prior to this, however, this imprint features a resolution by the Confederate House of Representatives resolving "that we the people of the Confederate States are firmly determined to continue the struggle in which we are involved until the United States shall acknowledge our independence..." A last gasp by the Confederate government to reassure and encourage its citizens for a hopeful end.
