What is a secession? to break away —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:28, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Looking backwards[edit]

In hindsight, I'm surprised that it was the South that seceded, not the North, and that the secession happened in 1860, not 1857. I wonder why the South seceded rather than throw a hissy fit and declare nullification, as one state did in 1832, or engage in a boycott, or some such thing. What was the point in taking such a drastic step? Did the people in the South know what they were getting into? (talk) 21:53, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

for that matter, why didn't anyone try to secede in the late 1950s and early 1960s? The underlying sentiments certainly seemed to exist, after all. (talk) 21:58, 28 January 2010 (UTC)


What's with all this random nonsense about Haitians and the 'newly settled south'?

South Carolina's been around since the 1600s, has it not?

and what does some random tale about Haiti have anything to do with the long drawn out war between the Yankees and the Southrons?

I figure if I just went along and deleted that impertinent mess I'd be chastized so I told y'all now, guess I'll come back in awhile and if nobody's got no problems i'll do it. -Eli
