Roll Call Voting Records for the Confederate Congresses, 1862-1865 (ICPSR 67)
Principal Investigator(s): Alexander, Thomas B.; Beringer, Richard E.
This data collection contains complete roll call records for the approximately 1,900 votes taken in both chambers of the three Confederate Congresses in the period 1862-1865. Included also is a biographical file that provides data on all those who were seated in any of the Confederate Congresses, including each member's name, age, state, district, party identification, and vocation, as well as the extent of the Congressman's landholdings, the number of slaves held, whether or not the district was occupied by union troops, and the member's stand on secession.
These data are available only to users at ICPSR member institutions. Because you are not logged in, we cannot verify that you will be able to download these data.
WARNING: Because this study has many datasets, the download all files option has been suppressed, and you will need to download one dataset at a time.
