No. 49. Proclamation declaring the Insurrec-
tion at an End
April 2, 1866

IN a message to the Senate December 18, 1865, in response to a resolution of December 12, President Johnson stated that the rebellion had been suppressed; "that the United States are in possession of every State in which the insurrection existed, and that, as far as it could be done, the courts of the United States have been restored, post-offices reëstablished, and steps taken to put into effective operation the revenue laws of the country." Various executive orders in regard to the blockade, commercial intercourse, habeas corpus, etc., preceded the proclamation of April 2. A similar proclamation of August 20 declared the insurrection in Texas at an end.
