Content from 40th United States Congress article[edit]

A portion of the following content was removed from article 40th United States Congress on 00:19, 6 July 2014‎. Specifically, the portion after, "... passed Congress ..." It was inappropriate for that article, but not in this article.

"February 26, 1869: Fifteenth Amendment passed Congress with a Senate vote of 39 Republican votes of "Yea", 8 Democrat & 5 Republican votes of "Nay" with 13 Republican & 1 Democrat not voting. The House of Representatives passed on 143 Republican & 1 Conservative Republican votes of "Yea", 39 Democrat, 3 Republican, 1 Independent Republican & 1 Conservative votes of "Nay" with 26 Republican, 8 Democrat & 1 Independent Republican not voting and then sent to the states for ratification."

I believe this material is for the most party, if not completely, already in the article. SMP0328. (talk) 01:16, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
I added the content from 40th United States Congress article, reworded the sentences and added also the necessary sources. This issued should be therefore resolved. --P3Y229 (talkcontribs) 12:17, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
