Description and Holding Information
1861-62, West Virginia Pre-statehood Sess. Laws
1861-1962 Acts of the General Assembly of the State of Virginia. During the Civil War and until the establishment of the state of West Virginia in
1863, a number of dissenting delegates from the western counties of Virginia bolted the secession convention and convened a separate convention in
Wheeling on May 13, 1861. At this and subsequent sessions the process went forward through which the western counties petitioned Congress to be admitted
into the Union as a separate state. Statehood was finalized on 31 December 1863. In the interval, those western Virginia state legislators sympathetic
to the Union held sessions of “The Restored Government of Virginia.” (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the University of
Virginia and Princeton University Library.)
Title:   Acts of the General Assembly, passed at the ... session ... at the City of Wheeling.
