A panel was held on the secession of South Carolina from the Union on December 20, 1860. South Carolina was the first state to secede from the Union, shortly after the 1860 election of Abraham Lincoln. Ten more states would secede in 1861. After both panelists made their presentations they responded to questions from members of the audience. Kyle Sinisi moderated.

Mark Neely spoke on “Secession as the De-Ratification of the Constitution.” William Freehling spoke on “Was Lincoln an Immediate Menace to Slavery?”

“The Revolution of 1860” was the afternoon panel of the “A House Divided: Secession and Its Legacy Symposium” held at the Citadel’s Holliday Alumni Center by The South Carolina Historical Society, The Citadel, and The Fort Sumter-Fort Moultrie Historical Trust. close
