A study of secession and nullification movements in theUnited States from the Nullification Resolutions of 1798 tothe American Civil War. The plot for a northern confederacy,the Burr plot, New England nullification and the HartfordConvention, and South Carolina's attempts at nullificationin 1832 are also considered. Powell goes on to propose thatthe secession of the southern states in 1861 was not aunique event in American history, but the culmination of atradition as old as the nation. Indeed, he argues, it wasan expression of the "intense individualism which was themost potent factor in the creation of the republic."Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
