William J. Cooper Jr. å 9 READ READ ß We Have the War Upon Us Ad in those crucial months leading up to the clash at Fort Sumter that tradition of compromise broke down and a rapid succession of events led to the great cataclysm in American history the Civil War All Americans did not view this crisis from the same perspective Strutting southern fire eaters designed to break up the Union Some Republicans crowing over their electoral triumph evinced little concern about the threatened dismemberment of the country Still others northerners and southerners antislave and proslave alike strove to find an euitable settlement that would maintain the Union whole Cooper captures the sense of contingency showing Americans in these months as not knowing where decisions would lead how events would unfold The people who populate these pages could not foresee what war if it c. The vexing issues dividing the country fulminated for decades prior to the severance of southern states from the union The Constitution by no means created a perfect union indeed the seeds that sprouted into sectional discord were sown by the founders in their imperfect resolution of the matter deeply at odds with the moral principles that undergirded the republic slavery The Southern states were acutely aware of the disdain of their Northern neighbors for the institution upon which the Southern economy depended By early in the 19th century slavery had disappeared from the North but the hope that slavery would fade away in the South was not realized The authority of each state to determine the status of slavery within its borders was unuestioned but the uestion of whether slavery would expand to new territories coming under the jurisdiction of the United States created great political bitterness Should or should not slavery be allowed in the territories and the new states to be admitted to the union from these territories Under a national constitution that respected property rights could national laws deny individuals the use of slave property in portions of the union where slavery did not exist What were the obligations of citizens and governments in non slave states to aid slave holders in the recovery of their human property that had escaped their owners Southerners felt sorely threatened by these uestions and worked diligently to maintain national political strength the so called Slave Power southern fear of eclipse by a union growing of Free States dictated much of their early and mid century political strategy The perceived arrogance of the Slave Power in pursuit of its interests was galling to many in the North The Missouri Compromise of 1820 sought to achieve sectional balance by admitting Missouri as a slave state and Maine as a free state and setting a latitudinal boundary that demarked slave owning portions of the nation from non slave areas The Kansas Nebraska Act in the 1850 s upset the balanced compromise of 1820 by permitting territories seeking statehood to decide by popular vote whether they would be slave or free this only exacerbated the hostilities between people on either side of the matter The Dred Scott decision of the US Supreme Court heightened antagonism in the North when it determined that black people whether free or enslaved were not citizens of the nation The court stipulated that Northern states and their jurisdictions were reuired to acknowledge and support the property rights of slave owners whose slaves had made their way to the North The Fugitive Slave law obliged citizens everywhere to actively assist slave owners in the recovery of their escaped slavesThis pervasive distress led to the collapse of the Whig Party and the emergence of the Republican Party entirely a Northern party The election of 1860 saw the victory of the Republican candidate Abraham Lincoln Lincoln and his party were firm on the imperative of not allowing the expansion of slavery where it did not already exist The fractured Democrats fielded two tickets Douglas representing the Northern Democrats and Breckinridge the candidate of the Southern faction With the inclusion of Bell another splinter candidate the election went to Lincoln who was by popular vote a minority presidentThe South reacted sharply to the prospect of a Republican administration particularly a radical element in South Carolina that threatened to secede from the union While Lincoln expressed no intent to interfere with slavery in the states where it existed he stood firm on prohibiting its expansion beyond It was the fear of what an anti slavery administration might do rather than any hostile policy pronouncements that drove the secessionists forward In Lincoln s election the Slave Power saw its political strength turned on its headCooper s book takes us from November 1860 to April 1861 describing the efforts to advance or forestall the break up of the union There were three elements of political maneuvering that emerged Radical Southerners were bent on seceding from the union most notably radical firebrands in South Carolina The Carolinians began immediately to take their state and they hoped others out of the union A moderate faction looked to preserve the union via Republican concessions they felt would secure their interests notably a constitutional amendment guaranteeing the perpetuation of slavery A coalition comprised largely of leaders of the border slave states hoped that extending the Missouri Compromise dividing line to the far west coast excluding California already a free state would satisfy the South Some recommended admitting New Mexico or Utah as a slave states positing that in the event slavery would never flourish in these desert regions The Republicans while averring they would not impinge on slavery where it already existed held rock solid in their opposition to any extension of slavery beyond its present confines A key player in all the machinations of the northern and border states was William Seward Seward had lost out on the nomination for the presidency to Lincoln but remained a powerful figure in Republican politics and destined for an important post in the Lincoln cabinet Seward looked for compromise and worked various angles with political allies to find a way to satisfy the South while maintaining adherence to the Republican position He did not succeed largely in the end because of Lincoln s and other Republicans refusal to bend on the expansion uestion John J Crittenden of Kentucky also worked desperately to find a solution All sides understood fully that the decision of the Upper South and Border States would be crucial to the success of secessionThe southern states called conventions to debate the uestion of secessionIn South Carolina the decision to secede was made within weeks of Lincoln s election The Carolinians worked hard to bring other states along with them The earliest to follow were the Deep South states Louisiana Mississippi Alabama Florida Georgia and Texas Even in these states there was a substantial segment of cooperationalists by most counts a majority of the population that favored maintaining the union These advocates of union were put off by the radicalism of the secessionists and hoped to find an acceptable compromise that would preserve the union For the Border States particularly Virginia Kentucky Tennessee Maryland and Missouri the goal of settling with the South led to various plans aimed at placating the radicals Throughout the fall and winter their proposals rose but always floundered over the matter of territorial expansion In the months following South Carolina s exit from the union the potential flashpoint capturing everyone s attention was Fort Sumter in Charleston harbor South Carolina offered to negotiate with the Buchanan administration for the purchase of the fort but the executive was unwilling to do this He announced his intention to keep the fort as a federal installation and to shift the collection of customs tariffs off sea to the fort and the navy The fort had a small contingent of defenders led by Major Anderson not nearly strong enough to resist any effort to take it Attempts to replenish the fort s supplies or the addition of reinforcements were seen by both sides as likely to cause the outbreak of hostility Fort Pickens near Pensacola Florida was similarly vulnerable other federal forts were unmanned and had been seized by the rebel states without response by the government Shortly after his inauguration Lincoln announced that he would provision Fort Sumter soon to be out of supplies and this triggered the attack on the fort by South Carolina As a conseuence Lincoln called up the militia and this led the wavering upper South states to take decisions to secede The value of Cooper s book is not only the story of last minute efforts to either dissolve or preserve the union although this aspect is not often given such excellent treatment Rather his description of the politics of these five months brings into vivid relief the long simmering discordant issues that came finally to a boil The fissures splitting the comity of the national union in the end defied resolution The South became increasingly anxious about the domination of the Free States We must remember that while many in the North were opposed to slavery only a fairly small contingent the Abolitionists were bent on seeing it eliminated in the South It was the argument about its expansion beyond the South that would be the tinder that ignited the breakup of the union There was a strain of historical thinking in the 20th century that characterized the Civil War as fought over states rights that slavery per se was not the root cause This is a misread The rights of the states to determine their own laws governing slavery was little in doubt but the imperative of the South to preserve its institution was thought to reuire maintaining a power balance with the North that could be done only by creating slave states as the nation expanded Cooper touches on ideas to enlarge the slave part of the nation southward by annexing Cuba or parts of Central America The matter of states rights is properly examined as to whether states had the right to opt out of the union The sentiment in the North was that once joined no state could sever its place in the union If there was ever an argument that could be made about the divisibility of the union the war settled it Moreover the notion that a nation founded on the inherent liberty of man could find and maintain a sectional balance that tolerated slavery in an otherwise free society was crushed by the carnage of the four year conflict Thus the two issues that the Constitution treated most ambiguously slavery and states rights were painfully but completely clarified
