ievements of the naval gunboat, the Virginia, in its victory at Hampton Roads over five Federal vessels. The U. S. frigate Merrimac had beefloating deep in water. Dropping down the Elizabeth river into Hampton Roads March 8th, this strange ironclad, now called the Virginia and camendment was not pressed until just before the negotiations at Hampton Roads. It was bruited around Washington about the first of January t other part, which was held on board a United States steamer in Hampton Roads, February, 1865. It will be seen on review of the entire histojustification of the action of the United States authorities at Hampton Roads, and in derogation of the character of President Davis. The ceresolving now to be present in person at the conference came to Hampton Roads where he joined Secretary Seward on the night of the 2nd and nee to continue in the struggle.

to encourage; one while threatening war on Europe and then making concessions even to a reluctant accession to the declaration of the Congress at Paris, pure and simple. The position that privateersmen were pirates was also abandoned, and the claim of a right to close part of its ports by a paper blockade was withdrawn upon the significant declaration by the European powers that the execution of privateersmen would be inhuman, and an ineffective blockade would not be tolerated. Spain and Portugal published brief proclamations of neutrality, but the Emperor of Russia through a letter of Gortschakoff to the Russian minister at Washington, expressed his unfriendliness to secession and conveyed his assur-ance that in every event the American nation may count upon his most cordial sympathy during the import-ant crisis through which it is passing. Thus stood the relations of the two contending governments with the nations. The Confederacy had won its right to be known as a government de
Wisconsin (Wisconsin, United States) (search for this): chapter 6
rough legislatures, courts, societies and popular meetings obstructed the attempt of any owner of the flying negro to recover his property. The Supreme Court of Wisconsin ventured to say in the case of Booth, who was tried for aiding in the rescue of Glover, that the fugitive slave law was unconstitutional, but, after due hearing,w York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania from the middle Atlantic seaboard had their embassadors, while Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Kansas stood for the West. Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, California and Oregon sent no delegates. The venerable John Tyler, ex-President of the United States, was chosen president and madichmond was so successfully defended. He then turned for consolation to further enrollment of the negro slaves, and in his August interview with Judge Mills, of Wisconsin, he cried out: Abandon all the posts now garrisoned by black men, take 200,000 men from our side and put them in the battlefield or cornfield against us and we w

followed, resulting in the antagonism of two Democratic candidates for the Presidency— Mr. Douglas and Mr. Breckinridge. The Republican party convention met in Chicago in May, 1860, actually representing only seventeen States, all Northern. Three others were nominally represented, but in fact there was no representation of any on upon which they might make a successful race. Democrats calling themselves war Democrats and announcing their devotion to the Union held a party conference at Chicago November 24, 1863, preliminary to the call for a national Democratic meeting in May, 1864. Another convention of Union men had assembled at Rochester, who also June 15th, to meet again in the following November. The period so auspicious for truce and peace passed on into the meeting of the National Democratic party in Chicago, August 31, 1864, to formulate a platform and put out opposition candidates pledged to invite the Southern States to resume their former relations as far as the n

at this period, but also the masterful management by Lee of the heroic armies under his command, and as well the fortitude of a people who contributed for their defense the fruits of the cradle and the withered leaves of the grave, as well as the flower of their chivalry. The political campaign consentaneous with the military movement of this period, fairly opened on the last of May as heretofore mentioned, in a convention of the extreme radical part of the Republican party, held in Cleveland, Ohio, which in a brief platform declared in favor of the most ultra war measures, even to the immediate confiscation of Southern lands and a division of them among Federal soldiers. This, however, was not a new view, as confiscation had often been urged in Congress before, and as far as possible had been put in practice under the war power. Even General Sherman had written a recommendation of this measure as the surest way of ending the rebellion. The convention merely repeated this old

Exchanges prisons and prisoners Andersonville in the South Elmira, Johnson Island and Fort Delaware in the North Confederate government not responsible for difficulties of exchange. there were two obstacles to exchange of prisoners from equivalents. The removal of this body required transportation, guards and rations which were very greatly needed by General Lee, and their equivalents from Johnson's Island or other Northern prisons would have given the Confederate commander several more divisions of gallant soldiers. Whatever else is doubtful about the prison e. Supposing that the South had no humane feelings toward Northern captives and cared nothing for the appeals of its own brave soldiers suffering at Elmira, Johnson's Island and elsewhere, it will still appear that there were military and civic reasons for the humane efforts so zealously put forth to relieve the brave men held i

Martial law was declared February 27th by President Davis over Norfolk and Portsmouth, and some months later over Richmond. The reverses occurring during the early spring in the West produads over five Federal vessels. The U. S. frigate Merrimac had been scuttled by the Federals on the first evacuation of Norfolk, but the Confederates raised her, and with ingenuity which confounded their adversaries, converted her into a ship of waer one hundred thousand men. He was confronted by the Confederate armies under General Johnston, who at length evacuated Norfolk and fell back slowly on a well-chosen line of retreat toward the defenses around Richmond.

north of the 41st degree north latitude. Both grants extended westward to an indefinite boundary. The Plymouth Settlement afterward subdued the Dutch possessions lying to the south, thus including that territory in the general term North. The settlements of Delaware and Maryland covered the areas lying north of Virginia and they were embraced in the section termed South. The general line of division, somewhat indistinct, lay between the 38th and the 39th degrees north latitude. The Mason and Dixon line—39° 43′ 26″—was established by subsequent surveys and was designed to settle certain boundary disputes. In the eighteenth century the original partition of King James was changed by various grants and the English possessions were also extended far down the Atlantic coast by grants of the Carolinas and Georgia The original Old South extended by all these grants along the Atlantic shore from the south line of Georgia to the north of Delaware, and westward from that wide ocean fron
