1863 – 1873: 8 seats[edit]

The 1860 census allotted 11 seats to Virginia, but 3 were assigned to West Virginia, established in 1863. Virginia was left with 8 seats.[1] For most of this decade, however, Virginian representatives were not seated in Congress because of Virginia's secession in the Civil War. After January 26, 1870, Virginia was allowed to seat members. The state convention called for a ninth seat, at-large, but the House rejected the credentials of its claimant, Joseph Segar.[2]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Supported the Adams-Clay faction in the 1824 United States presidential election
  2. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t Supported the Crawford faction in the 1824 United States presidential election
  3. ^ Supported the Jackson faction in the 1824 United States presidential election
  4. ^ a b The delegation during the 37th Congress has incomplete district data. In some sources, Carlile and Whaley are shown as both starting on March 4, 1861 — which is the starting date of that Congress — but other sources list them as both being elected in district 11 which contradicts that they both served simultaneously.
