It is early December, 1860, the United States is about to tear itself apart with a full blown war (Civil War or War Between the States). Disregarding the issue of Slavery, describe why you feel that the South should be capable to leave the Union constitutionally, or not. Please keep in mind that the South's argument was that the North (New England) had attempted to secede from the Union three times before 1860, though, changed its mind. And, the fact that the states had bought to the Articles of Confederation which specifically permitted states to leave, if they wished. Also, please keep in mind that from the North's point of view, it is illegal for the South to secede and the Union should be preserved at all costs.
