Dec. 10, 1861

Dec. 10, 1861: In Washington, the Congress forms the Joint Committee on the Conduct of the War, to engage in investigations and interrogations into any issues that bear examination.

In Richmond, the Confederate Congress admits Kentucky as its 13th state, even though the majority of Kentuckians oppose such a move, and the state legislature has expressly repudiated secession.
