Description and Holding Information
1852, Convention journal (MS)
Manuscript of the Journal of the State Convention of South Carolina of 1852. This convention resolved on April 30th that the federal government's
violation of the constitution by its encroachment of the rights of the state, particularly slavery, justified "dissolving at once all political
connection with her Co-States," although South Carolina choose not to for "expediency" reasons. The convention then voted to pass an ordinance to declare the
"right of the state to secede" from the federal union. See LLMC #21133 for related document. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally
held by the New York Public Library).
