Excerpt from Records of the Columbia Historical Society, Washington, D. C, Vol. 22

The early part of the year 1863 found this District in a greatly disturbed condition by reason of the Civil War. That struggle had not then reached its high water mark in the fierce battle of Gettysburg; Presi dent Lincoln's emancipation proclamation had just been made; there were many foes of the administration at home and abroad; and those who were charged with the responsibility of conducting the civil and military affairs of the nation, felt the necessity of having strong and tried men in every important position, executive, legislative, and judicial.

The Circuit Court of this District established under the Act of February 27, 1801 (2 Stat. L. 103) was then the court of general jurisdiction. It was composed of three judges, Chief Judge James Dunlop, and assistant judges, James S. Morsell and William M. Merrick.
