According to the 10th amendment, States retain all rights not prohibited by the Constitution.
Thus, they retained the right to secession.
The right of a sovereign state to determine what is in its best interest?Why would the founders make it so easy for the Union to self Destruct?

I don't see how the North can be considered the aggressors when the South were the ones that seceded and then attacked the North.
The South did not care about state's rights. They cared about preserving slavery and remaining the dominating force in the government of country.Originally Posted by Goobieman

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
