U.S. Congress met in two sessions: 1) December 7, 1863 to
July 4, 1864; and 2) December 5, 1864 to March 4, 1865. A Special
Session was convened from March 4th to March 14th in 1863.
Due to the results of the 1860 U.S. Census, South Carolina
was authorized to send four (4) delegates to the U.S. House of
Representatives. However, since South Carolina had seceded from
the Union, no U.S. Congress delegates were elected. South Carolina
continued to send delegates to the Confederate Congress.
