Declaration Of Independence Supports Secession
Any remaining constitutional question about rights of states to secede was laid to rest: if allegiance to the national government was primary, action by states could not cut the bond between Americans and the national government.
In this instance, a reverend clergy actually exhorted men to throw stones at the Southern gentleman. But on the same day, he learned that his home state of Virginia had decided to secede from the Union. Instead, to my knowledge they put obstacles in momentous constitutional and political events. Or we surrender like sheep the slaughter.
