    Illegally. I guess its better to start a war and kill thousands than to just let a state leave, fail and come back later on their knees.

    Tell that to Lincoln then, because he's the one that made the call.

    The Confederacy should have thought about that when they used a military force to siege FT Sumter.

    The Dred Scott decision is not part of the Constitution. If it protected slavery with that decision, then it invalidated secession in Texas v. White. That court decision is just as valid, and just as much "part of the Constitution." You can't have it both ways. You can't cherry pick the SC decisions you like and disregard the others.

    I assume you mean this snippet of the Constitution:

    No Person held to Service or Labour in one State, under the Laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in Consequence of any Law or Regulation therein, be discharged from such Service or Labour, but shall be delivered up on Claim of the Party to whom such Service or Labour may be due.
    Does that say that black people are property? Does it say that slavery shall never be made illegal?

    Lol. Back to Fort Sumter. The fort on their territory and their property..

    Are you aware that it was told to Lincoln he should NOT fight the south over Fort Sumter?

    The attack on Fort Sumter was a declaration of war.

    No, the South were the aggressors: first by refusing to ratify the Constitution unless it included a protection for slavery but with the understanding that slavery would end in 20 years, second continuing slavery long after it was to end and expanding it to the new states, third by using slavery to undermine the wages of the labor in the North creating an unfair economic advantage, fourth by trying to break up the union with succession and fifth by attacking Fort Sumter.
