The Union soldiers wanted the Confederate states to free the African American Slaves. On the other hand, the Southern States’ apostles of disunion (Southern Secession Commissioners) convinced the other Southern states to secede from the Union states as a matter of states’ right and to prevent the Republican (Union) states from meddling in the internal affairs of the Southern States. The Southern States’ 1860 to 1861 Apostles of Disunion came from Alabama, Lousiana, South Carolina, Mississippi, and Georgia.
Further, the author does not agree with the previous historians treated the topic of the slave issue of the civil war (Dew 1). The previous historians created an impression that the Southern states have to right to keep the slaves as person properties. The previous historians created an impression that the Union States are completely right in forcing the Southern States to free their personal property, the slave. This image runs counter to the constitution’s democratic principle of ownership of property and the right of the state to exercise its political, economic, social and other rights and power over its citizens and residents.
Furthermore, the author shows that some authors create an impression that the Southern states have a right to create and maintain their own destination (Dew 1). The same authors emphasize that the Southern States have the constitutional duty to prevent other states from preventing its political decision to maintain its own internal policies, including classifying the slaves as not equal to the White slave owners. The authors create an impression that the Southern States refuses marriages between African Americans and the superior White Race.
The author offers a vivid answer to the issue of Slavery (Dew 1). Likewise, the author clearly answers the question that the Southern States have the right to secede in order to prevent the Republican states from meddling in theinternal political, social, economic and other policies of the Southern States.
