comment Why was Lithuania not colonized by Soviet Union?
It is with a heavy heart that I moved those comments. Many of them were fascinating and informative. I'd encourage checking out the chat they got moved to.

comment Why did John Ganson vote contradictorily on the 13th Amendment?
@ohspite - Interesting. That would explain it. I know that's roughly how things work in the Senate, except that the official head of the Senate in the US is the Vice President, not a Senator. The VP almost never votes, unless there is a tie.

comment Why did John Ganson vote contradictorily on the 13th Amendment?
@ohspite He was present for the second vote, but possibly not for the first according to your roll call. There could be lots of reasons for that. Perhaps he just had to go to the bathroom, perhaps he overslept, perhaps they convened early to get a quorum without some of the no votes present, etc.
