We have dissolved the late Union chiefly BECAUSE OF THE NEGRO QUARREL. Now, is there any man who wished to reproduce that strife among ourselves? And yet does not he, who wished the slave trade left for the action of Congress, see that he proposed to open a Pandora's box among us and to cause our political arena again to resound with this discussion. Had we left the question unsettled, we should, in my opinion, have sown broadcast the seeds of discord and death in our Constitution. I congratulate the country that the strife has been put to rest forever, and that AMERICAN SLAVERY IS TO STAND BEFORE THE WORLD AS IT IS, AND ON ITS OWN MERITS. We have now placed our domestic institution, and secured its rights unmistakably, in the Constitution. We have sought by no euphony to hide its name. WE HAVE CALLED OUR NEGROES 'SLAVES', AND WE HAVE RECOGNIZED AND PROTECTED THEM AS PERSONS AND OUR RIGHTS TO THEM AS PROPERTIY. — Robert Hardy Smith, An Address to the Citizens of Alabama on the Constitution and Laws of the Confederate States of America, 1861.
"The new constitution has put at rest, forever, all the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institution African slavery as it exists amongst us the proper status of the negro in our form of civilization. THIS WAS THE IMMEDIATE CAUSE OF THE LATE RUPTURE AND PRESENT REVOLUTION. Jefferson in his forecast, had anticipated this, as the “rock upon which the old Union would split."
-Alexander H. Stephens
