U.S. House of Representatives , 39th Congress, 1st Session, Mis. Doc. 121. June 15, 1866. 10pp., measuring 5.75 x 9". Glued left margin. Very Slight soiling along top edge. Else VG plus.

This pre-G.A.R. Pennsylvania soldiers convention passed a number of resolutions, including one "That the Soldiers of Pennsylvania view with jealousy and alarm certain indications pointing toward the release of Jefferson Davis, the great arch-traitorof the land, on bail or otherwise, and it is believed to his discharge eventually. We protest in the name of th epast and of the future of our country, against any action that will relieve Davis from his just deserts-to wit, execution for the crime of treason."

The convention also resolves that the distinction between rank and file and commissioned officers, if convenient in the field, should be continued in the pension rolls of the United States, where persons should be equalized. Fascinating document, and an excellent Pennsylvania collectible.
