Excerpt from A Short History of the Confederate States of America

The Vindication of the Southern States for their Ordi nances of Secession in 1861 involves two considerations namely: their rightful power to withdraw from the Union into which they had entered by voluntary compact and the causes that justified the exercise of that: power.

In treating this question in its twofold aspect, the legal and the moral, it is not intended to vex the weary ear by adducing time-worn arguments; but, believing the case to be one which must be adjusted finally by historical facts, the candid reader is asked, Without favor or prejudice, to make a decision on the unquestionable record.
