William D. Porter, State Sovereignty And The Doctrine Of Coercion…pamphlet
A Thrilling Memento Of The Secession Mania That Led To War
William Porter’s State Sovereignty and the Doctrine of Coercion, with a letter from J.K. Pauling, former Naval Secretary.
Porter, a firebrand state senator from South Carolina, published this pamphlet in the run-up to the 1860 election. He states that the election of Lincoln “is now well nigh certain,” and begins laying out the case for secession. The former Navy Secretary, Paulding, adds his support of the idea in a letter from Hyde Park, New York.
A thrilling memento of the secession mania that led to war.
