No. 36. Supplementary Enrolment Act February 24, 1864

A BILL to amend the enrolment act of March 3, 1863 [No. 31] was introduced in the Senate, January 5, 1864, by Wilson of Massachusetts, and on the 18th passed with amendments, the vote being 30 to 10. With further amendments the bill passed the House, February 12, by a vote of 94 to 65. The Senate refused to accept the amendments of the House, and the bill received its final form from a conference committee. The discussions and proposed amendments related chiefly to the furnishing of substitutes, the penalty for resistance to the draft, and the enlistment of negroes.
