Secession: In their own words The State South Carolina’s “Ordinance of Secession” merely declares our state’s termination of its union with the other states. But the secessionists did not leave anyone guessing about their motives. Four days after adopting the Ordinance, the delegates to the secession convention adopted a six-page “Declaration of the Immediate Causes Which Induce and Justify the Secession of South Carolina from the Federal Union.” They ordered that 15,000 copies be printed together with the two-paragraph Ordinance. The first half of the declaration lays out the legal case for secession, recounting the circumstances under which the Revolution was fought and the Union established and paying particular attention to the idea that each state was “free, sovereign and independent.” The second half explains the reason for secession.
