Why did Southern states secede? the 1st 80 years of our life grounded our unique states and people created thereafter in diametrically contrary philosophical platforms: slave and loose. may possibly a rustic erected at the brick and mortar of person freedom and self-determination proceed with a wide percent of its inhabitants in chains?
