    Question about signatures when West Virginia became a state

    Alice Lane Scout

      In the 1862 document when West Virginia became a state President Lincoln signed it "President of the United States and President of the Senate" but I just read that the Vice President of the United of the United States is President of the Senate. Does anyone have any information about this.
