37th Congress, 2d Session. Mis. Doc. No. 9. While completely supporting Presidential power over the military, the House "deems it appropriate to express its earnest sense and conviction that in the prosecution of this war no resort, on the one hand, should be had to a plea of 'military necessity' as a cover for any violation of any constitutional right of any citizen of the United States, either in slaves or in any other right of the citizen...."
