It's ok when a New Englander calls for secession don't ya know!
"The Constitution is a mistake! Tear it to pieces! Our aim is disunion!" Massachusetts Senator Wendell Phillips. There was nothing wrong with secession as long a New Englanders were calling for it. No one ever denied them their right to do so.
March 24th 1862 the Senator from Massachusetts, hater of the South and all things Southern speaks to a crowd about emancipation in Cincinnati, Ohio and is pelted by eggs. I guess Northern folks didn’t much care for his rhetoric either.
Is it any wonder why the South was not enamored to the Republicans and why they would seek separation once these hypocritical radicals were in power?
