The Abbeville InstituteAlthough the nation recently recognized the 150th anniversary of the end of the War of Northern Aggression, we are still plagued with questions about the legality of secession, issues and inquiries that unfortunately may never end. In exchanges on social media over the years, I have argued our principles as passionately as anyone can, while kindly, but at times very bluntly, being informed that secession was, in fact, treason.  Most Southern patriots have heard similar charges, particularly in the halls of academia.

So, after a century and a half, what are we to make of this? Are Southern political principles still valid today? Is secession really illegal? Is it treason and rebellion? Is the compact theory dead?  Was it ever sound to begin with? The issue comes down to two opposing viewpoints.
