Speech of Hon. Jacob M. Howard, of Michigan, on the Joint Resolution for the Recognition and Re-Admission to the Union, of Louisiana. [caption title]


Civil War-time speech of U.S. Senator Jacob M. Howard of Michigan concerning the re-admission to the Union of the former Confederate State of Louisiana, then under U.S. military occupation.

Howard refers to Louisiana’s “‘Revised Constitution’ of April, 1864” then under consideration. “Congress ought, in my opinion, to take the subject of readmission into their own hands. It is for them and not for the Executive to execute the important guarantee to each State of a republican government, and this duty presses upon us more and more as our victorious arms advance toward the close of hostilities.” (p15)
