* Note: After the southern states seceded from the USA in 1860 and 1861, most of their Representatives and Senators left the U.S. Congress and formed the Confederate Congress. Most of them were Democrats, so the numbers of Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Congress is skewed by the absence of those southern Democrats.

**Note: During the Grant Administration, the Southern states slowly re-applied for admission to the Union. The period from the end of the Civil War to the point at which all southern states were re-admitted to the Union is called "Reconstruction." During this time, the U. S. Army basically ran the South and helped ensure that freed slaves were allowed to vote and hold office. As a result of this, many Republican congressmen were elected through the enforcement of electoral laws allowing Blacks to vote. Most of the freed slaves naturally voted for the Republican Party; "the party of Lincoln." After the Army was withdrawn in 1877, election laws were changed in the South to make it much more difficult, if not impossible, for Blacks to vote. As a result, the Democratic Party gained control of the southern states and their congressional delegations.
