    [Colorado]. Message of the President of the United States, Transmitting a Communication Addressed to him by John Evans and J. B. 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.
