MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, RETURNING THE BILL TO ADMIT THE STATE OF COLORADO INTO THE UNION, WITH HIS OBJECTIONS THERETO.

39th Cong., 2d Sess. SED7. 1867. 11pp, dbd, minor foxing. Very Good. Colorado became a Territory in 1861. Despite its pleas for admission to the Union, it did not become a State until 1876. President Johnson explains that, although the people of Colorado had approved a constitutional provision prohibiting Negroes from voting, Congress's bill to admit Colorado as a State barred it from denying the suffrage on that ground. "The incongruity" results in his veto. Item #13731
