Shortly after the beginning of the Civil War, Congress established the Joint Committee on the Conduct of the War to investigate various matters in connection with the war. By examining the conflict between Congress's constitutional right to investigate and the impropriety of its action, historian Bruce Tap raises questions and issues that are just as applicable today. 12 photos.
