From The Congressional Record, March 8, 1820, p. 42, Proceedings of the United States Senate
Presiding Officer: The chair will recognize the distinguished senator from Kentucky, Micah McConnell.
Sen. McConnell: Thank you, Senator. I wish to spend a few moments on the issue which is most momentous to my constituents and which requires the intervention of this body and our brothers in the House. I mean, of course, the War on Wood.
