Chaffee, as United States Senators Elect from the State of Colorado, and other Information in Relation to the Admission of that State Into the Union. 39th Congress, 1st Session: SED10., 1866. First edition. Octavo. 34pp, stitched, uncut. Some very minor toning and creasing very good to near fine.

    Colorado became a Territory in 1861; despite this plea for admission to the Union, it did not become a State until 1876. This document includes the call for a convention, the constitution submitted to Congress for approval, the results of the vote overwhelmingly rejecting Negro suffrage, and the resolution approving the Thirteenth Amendment abolishing slavery.
