The Editor has compiled documents written by the participants. Volume 1 covers the period from Lincoln's nomination in the Wigwam, to the cloaked agitations of English aristocrats seeking to aid the South [547]while England's liberals [Cobden 544] and Unions offered support to Lincoln [540].
Immediately upon the election of Lincoln, the legislature of South Carolina met, and on December 20, 1860, unanimously declared its dissolution from the Union. This first State to secede emphasized in its "Declaration of Causes" [8-9] that it was all about SLAVERY. The undisputed principle of "State's Rights" is used only as a euphemism and is completely enveloped in their defense of enslavement of men as a kind of "property right". In fact "Property Rights" is simply another euphemism for this enslavement to enslavement. The Confederate
withdrawal was triggered by "the election of a man to the high office of President of the United States whose opinions and purposes are hostile to Slavery".
