Why Did The South Secede?

Have you ever sat and wondered,

“Just why did the South secede from the Union?”

This site attempts to answer that very question using both the voice of the South itself in the form of primary sources, and the voice of the people of today who are forced to live with that decision made so many years ago in the form of annotations that anyone can add throughout this site.

Hopefully you find what you’re looking for and at the very least leave with a more informed opinion and understanding of this subject.
