Wikipedia would have all the info that it sounds like you need, you will just have to dig for it.

Using the Spanish-American War for example, here is what Wikipedia says are the answers to your questions:
President: William McKinley (Republican)
Control of Congress: 55th United States Congress: Both houses were in Republican control
(Senate had: 44 R, 34 D, 5 Silver Republicans, 5 Populists, 2 Silver; The House had: 206 R, 124 D, 22 Populists, 3 Silver Republicans, 1 Silver, 1 Independent Republican)
Vote to go to War: House: 310 to 6 Senate: 42 to 35

Only war we've really started was the Revolutionary War and Civil War. I guess you could lump Desert Storm and Operation Enduring Freedom in there although some argue they are not technically wars (except for Desert Storm). All the others were just one we decided to get involved with.
