CS President Jefferson Davis vetoes an act to establish a Veteran's Soldiers Home. "To The House of Representatives of the Confederate States of America: Having carefully considered the act entitled "An act to provide for wounded and disabled officers, soldiers, and seamen, an asylum to be called 'The Veteran Soldiers' Home', I feel constrained to return it, with my objections, to the House of Representatives. . . . in providing the means for effectuating that object, it enacts provisions which, in my judgement, are unwarranted by the Constitution."
