Notes
Fine / new condition, medium octavo, hard back, tan cloth, title in gilt across front, spine unmarked, stamp of St. Francis Xavier's School on front free end paper, 58 pages. Quotations from statutes, the Constitution and other documents selected and commented on concerning the reasons ".why the Southern State seceded, to relieve the Southern people from the charge of treason, to set forth briefly the efforts they (the Southern people) to maintain peace in order thay their descendants may not, under the influence of so-called histories, false, partizan and vituperative, cease to honour their fathers." The compiler was a native of Alabama, rocked in a "State's Rights cradle", "suckled on a secession pap"; in the Confederate Service all through the war; from his youth he favoured the abolition of slavery in his native State and at the time of writing yielded to none in his devotion to the Union as it then was.
