    [Confederacy] Speech of Hon. Gustavus A. Henry, of Tennessee, In the Senate of the Confederate States, November 29, 1864. Eleven pages, 6" x 9.5", Richmond, 1864. The speech is in reference to a "question being on the joint resolution introduced by him in the Senate, defining the position of the Confederate States, and declaring the determination of the Congress and the people thereof to prosecute the war till their independence is acknowledged." The speech is bound with a single string and done in such a way as to prevent its opening to fully view the contents. Colored with age, there are what appear to be green paint drippings on the front page. Foxed throughout. Very good condition.
