Hardcover. * A study of secession and nullification movements in the United States from the Nullification Resolutions of 1798 to the American Civil War. The plot for a northern confederacy (1803-04), the Burr plot (1805-1806), New England nullification and the Hartford Convention (1812-1814), and South Carolina's attempts at nullification in 1832 are also considered. Powell [1833-1915] goes on to propose that the secession of the southern states in 1861 was not a unique event in American history, but the culmination of a tradition as old as the nation. Indeed, he argues, it was an expression of the "intense individualism which was most potent factor in the creation of the republic." Preface. Sensitive to the continued animosity between the north and south, Powell hoped that the historical context provided by his study would help to promote a spirit of reconciliation.
