Secede Now [Closed and annotated.]

[It is the position of the management that the question of the Constitutionality of secession was settled in the 19th century by the landmark case Lincoln v. Davis.  The decision was 5-4, with Grant writing the majority opinion; concurring opinions were issued by Sherman, Sheridan, Thomas, & Farragut.  Lee, Stuart, Jackson, & Longstreet dissented.  The topic has not since been revisited*. - ML]
