An impressive run of the territorial laws for Nebraska Territory, probably impossible to assemble separately today. The first volume includes the Organic Act, organizing the Territory, which encompassed areas of what is today Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, Colorado, and Montana. Issued at a point of national turmoil over the status of slavery in the new territories, these laws are of great importance for the leadup to the Civil War.Each title is as follows: 1) LAWS, RESOLUTIONS AND MEMORIALS, PASSED AT THE REGULAR SESSION OF THE FIRST GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE TERRITORY OF NEBRASKA....
