  • Europa Universalis III
  • Victoria: Revolutions
Declaration of the Immediate Causes Which Induce and Justify the Secession of South Carolina from the Federal Union



The people of the State of South Carolina, in Convention assembled, on the 26th day of April, A.D. 1852, declared that the frequent violations of the Constitution of the United States, by the Federal Government, and its encroachments upon the reserved rights of the States, fully justified this State in then withdrawing from the Federal Union; but in deference to the opinions and wishes of the other slaveholding States, she forbore at that time to exercise this right. Since that time, these encroachments have continued to increase, and further forbearance ceases to be a virtue.


And now the State of South Carolina having resumed her separate and equal place among nations, deems it due to herself, to the remaining United States of America, and to the nations of the world, that she should declare the immediate causes which have led to this act.
In the year 1765, that portion of the British Empire embracing Great Britain, undertook to make laws for the government of that portion composed of the thirteen American Colonies. A struggle for the right of self-government ensued, which resulted, on the 4th of July, 1776, in a Declaration, by the Colonies, "that they are, and of right ought to be, FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES; and that, as free and independent States, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent States may of right do."


They further solemnly declared that whenever any "form of government becomes destructive of the ends for which it was established, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new government." Deeming the Government of Great Britain to have become destructive of these ends, they declared that the Colonies "are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved."


In pursuance of this Declaration of Independence, each of the thirteen States proceeded to exercise its separate sovereignty; adopted for itself a Constitution, and appointed officers for the administration of government in all its departments - Legislative, Executive and Judicial. For purposes of defense, they united their arms and their counsels; and, in 1778, they entered into a League known as the Articles of Confederation, whereby they agreed to entrust the administration of their external relations to a common agent, known as the Congress of the United States, expressly declaring, in the first Article "that each State retains its sovereignty, freedom and independence, and every power, jurisdiction and right which is not, by this Confederation, expressly delegated to the United States in Congress assembled."


Under this Confederation the war of the Revolution was carried on, and on the 3rd of September, 1783, the contest ended, and a definite Treaty was signed by Great Britain, in which she acknowledged the independence of the Colonies in the following terms:


"ARTICLE 1 - His Britannic Majesty acknowledges the said United States, viz: New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, to be FREE, SOVEREIGN AND INDEPENDENT STATES; that he treats with them as such; and for himself, his heirs and successors, relinquishes all claims to the government, propriety and territorial rights of the same and every part thereof."


Thus were established the two great principles asserted by the Colonies, namely: the right of a State to govern itself; and the right of a people to abolish a Government when it becomes destructive of the ends for which it was instituted. And concurrent with the establishment of these principles, was the fact, that each Colony became and was recognized by the mother Country a FREE, SOVEREIGN AND INDEPENDENT STATE.
In 1787, Deputies were appointed by the States to revise the Articles of Confederation, and on 17th September, 1787, these Deputies recommended for the adoption of the States, the Articles of Union, known as the Constitution of the United States.


The parties to whom this Constitution was submitted, were the several sovereign States; they were to agree or disagree, and when nine of them agreed the compact was to take effect among those concurring; and the General Government, as the common agent, was then invested with their authority.


If only nine of the thirteen States had concurred, the other four would have remained as they then were - separate, sovereign States, independent of any of the provisions of the Constitution. In fact, two of the States did not accede to the Constitution until long after it had gone into operation among the other eleven; and during that interval, they each exercised the functions of an independent nation.
By this Constitution, certain duties were imposed upon the several States, and the exercise of certain of their powers was restrained, which necessarily implied their continued existence as sovereign States. But to remove all doubt, an amendment was added, which declared that the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people. On the 23d May, 1788, South Carolina, by a Convention of her People, passed an Ordinance assenting to this Constitution, and afterwards altered her own Constitution, to conform herself to the obligations she had undertaken.


Thus was established, by compact between the States, a Government with definite objects and powers, limited to the express words of the grant. This limitation left the whole remaining mass of power subject to the clause reserving it to the States or to the people, and rendered unnecessary any specification of reserved rights.


We hold that the Government thus established is subject to the two great principles asserted in the Declaration of Independence; and we hold further, that the mode of its formation subjects it to a third fundamental principle, namely: the law of compact. We maintain that in every compact between two or more parties, the obligation is mutual; that the failure of one of the contracting parties to perform a material part of the agreement, entirely releases the obligation of the other; and that where no arbiter is provided, each party is remitted to his own judgment to determine the fact of failure, with all its consequences.


In the present case, that fact is established with certainty. We assert that fourteen of the States have deliberately refused, for years past, to fulfill their constitutional obligations, and we refer to their own Statutes for the proof.


The Constitution of the United States, in its fourth Article, provides as follows:


"No person held to service or labor in one State, under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service or labor, but shall be delivered up, on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due."
This stipulation was so material to the compact, that without it that compact would not have been made. The greater number of the contracting parties held slaves, and they had previously evinced their estimate of the value of such a stipulation by making it a condition in the Ordinance for the government of the territory ceded by Virginia, which now composes the States north of the Ohio River.


The same article of the Constitution stipulates also for rendition by the several States of fugitives from justice from the other States.
The General Government, as the common agent, passed laws to carry into effect these stipulations of the States. For many years these laws were executed. But an increasing hostility on the part of the non-slaveholding States to the institution of slavery, has led to a disregard of their obligations, and the laws of the General Government have ceased to effect the objects of the Constitution. The States of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa, have enacted laws which either nullify the Acts of Congress or render useless any attempt to execute them. In many of these States the fugitive is discharged from service or labor claimed, and in none of them has the State Government complied with the stipulation made in the Constitution. The State of New Jersey, at an early day, passed a law in conformity with her constitutional obligation; but the current of anti-slavery feeling has led her more recently to enact laws which render inoperative the remedies provided by her own law and by the laws of Congress. In the State of New York even the right of transit for a slave has been denied by her tribunals; and the States of Ohio and Iowa have refused to surrender to justice fugitives charged with murder, and with inciting servile insurrection in the State of Virginia. Thus the constituted compact has been deliberately broken and disregarded by the non-slaveholding States, and the consequence follows that South Carolina is released from her obligation.


The ends for which the Constitution was framed are declared by itself to be "to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity."
These ends it endeavored to accomplish by a Federal Government, in which each State was recognized as an equal, and had separate control over its own institutions. The right of property in slaves was recognized by giving to free persons distinct political rights, by giving them the right to represent, and burthening them with direct taxes for three-fifths of their slaves; by authorizing the importation of slaves for twenty years; and by stipulating for the rendition of fugitives from labor.


We affirm that these ends for which this Government was instituted have been defeated, and the Government itself has been made destructive of them by the action of the non-slaveholding States. Those States have assume the right of deciding upon the propriety of our domestic institutions; and have denied the rights of property established in fifteen of the States and recognized by the Constitution; they have denounced as sinful the institution of slavery; they have permitted open establishment among them of societies, whose avowed object is to disturb the peace and to eloign the property of the citizens of other States. They have encouraged and assisted thousands of our slaves to leave their homes; and those who remain, have been incited by emissaries, books and pictures to servile insurrection.


For twenty-five years this agitation has been steadily increasing, until it has now secured to its aid the power of the common Government. Observing the forms of the Constitution, a sectional party has found within that Article establishing the Executive Department, the means of subverting the Constitution itself. A geographical line has been drawn across the Union, and all the States north of that line have united in the election of a man to the high office of President of the United States, whose opinions and purposes are hostile to slavery. He is to be entrusted with the administration of the common Government, because he has declared that that "Government cannot endure permanently half slave, half free," and that the public mind must rest in the belief that slavery is in the course of ultimate extinction.


This sectional combination for the submersion of the Constitution, has been aided in some of the States by elevating to citizenship, persons who, by the supreme law of the land, are incapable of becoming citizens; and their votes have been used to inaugurate a new policy, hostile to the South, and destructive of its beliefs and safety.


On the 4th day of March next, this party will take possession of the Government. It has announced that the South shall be excluded from the common territory, that the judicial tribunals shall be made sectional, and that a war must be waged against slavery until it shall cease throughout the United States.


The guaranties of the Constitution will then no longer exist; the equal rights of the States will be lost. The slaveholding States will no longer have the power of self-government, or self-protection, and the Federal Government will have become their enemy.


Sectional interest and animosity will deepen the irritation, and all hope of remedy is rendered vain, by the fact that public opinion at the North has invested a great political error with the sanction of more erroneous religious belief.


We, therefore, the People of South Carolina, by our delegates in Convention assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, have solemnly declared that the Union heretofore existing between this State and the other States of North America, is dissolved, and that the State of South Carolina has resumed her position among the nations of the world, as a separate and independent State; with full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent States may of right do.

This is Robert E. Lee, Brigidier General of the Confederate States of America. He drew this himself.



This is his Army, the Army of Northern Virginia. It's current commander is Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard. In an alternative timeline that some refer to as 'real life', Jefferson Davis appointed Beauregard the first Commander of the Army of Northern Virginia. Lee was the Third Commander. Why?



Because Beauregard's French. In the era of Napoleon, that's where you go to find Winners.

So why is Ben Kenobi copying Phargle who did this whole gag much better? Why is Ben Kenobi taking Crusader Kings memes and applying them to Victoria? Is Ben Kenobi ever going to get to the actual game? Find out next time in "Deo Vindice", a CSAAR!

"Boss, whose side are we on?
"Whose do you think? The winnin' side!



We'll take a quick overview where the CSA stands vs our mortal enemies, the Damn Yankees.

How do you know they are evil?





Obviously Evil!

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ObviouslyEvil

We've got a bit of a task ahead of us, though.



Here's our sliders. We're losing 67 pounds a turn. Which is bad. Lots of work needed to be done here to get us war ready. It would suck if we had to fight a war. Oh.



Our rankings. The Union is 11th in total military. We are 15th. Industrial tells the tale though. We have a gap of more than 100 industrial, which is huge.



The Union has 2.5x our population. :eek:

What have you gotten us into Davis?! :mad:



"I believe they call it,

"Succession"

"Yeaarrrgh"

Will Ben Kenobi manage to turn around the Confederacy? Will Ben Kenobi strangle Jefferson Davis? Will Ben Kenobi finish his chicken fried steak leftovers? Find out next time in "Deo Vindice", a CSAAR!

Ok, General Lee?



Blares Dixie

[video=youtube;qJhnWgs5Okc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJhnWgs5Okc&bpctr=1382694435[/video]

No, no. Not THAT General Lee. THIS General Lee.



Oh. Yes Sir?

How are we going to win this thing?! We have just 12 divisions!



There are two strategies we can try. One, we can throw everyone up north and try to take Washington DC, and hire some general to take three divisions (including the cavalry, and protect the Shenandoah Valley from Manassas, Staunton and Lynchburg, and then keep the remaining divisions in the west - protecting Paducah and Nashville. From there, we can control everything from the East of the Mississippi.

Will that work?

Sir - with just 6 divisions - so long as Manassas is protected, we can guard the entire south from Chattanooga to Lynchburg with just 3 divisions in each against 50 union divisions! They won't be able to force a victory and they won't be able to turn the divisions. We might not win, but so long as we occupy DC we'll be able to force a peace.

What strategy will the enemy attempt to use?

They will adopt a form of the 'Anaconda plan.'

What's that?

The anaconda plan will choke the south off by blockading our ports and using their massively superior navy. They intend to force us on the defense and eventually force the issue with superior numbers.

Will it work?

Like a boa constrictor - every year the war passes, we will fall further and further behind.

Thank you for your advice, General Lee, but I have a cunning plan. Take over the Army of Northern Virginia and prepare for Battle! The Union is massing forces at Washington and preparing to attack Manassas! You *must* win this battle!

Part 2: Stores and Schedules

First, we use our existing stores of guns and cans to build 4 additional reserve divisions. Reserve divisions cost us just 40 guns and 40 cans, but, when mobilized, cost us 10k to mobilize and give us 4 divisions. To build 4 divisions of regulars would cost us the same plus 40k. This way we get the beef. It will take 3 months to mobilize, starting July 5th - means we will get our troops October 5th, and should prove decisive.

Second, I will stop educating our people, stop crime fighting and raise taxes to 50 percent. We are laissez faire, which limits my taxation powers. I am not going to tax tariffs, as I see no evidence that tariffs actually increase revenue. We are losing 15 pounds a turn on July 5th, but this will level out once our economy starts selling back to the world market.

I will also import 20 clothes - to convert two large stacks of Dixie population to soldiers. A necessary evil to fix our manpower problems. This is all the war prep we need to do for now.

Now - it is time for Battle - First Manassas!

Part 3: First Manassas



Victory!

The Army of Northern Virginia, commanded by Brigidier General Lee, with just the 1st and 2nd Virginia rifles and the NC rifles with 15k men hold Manassas against 65k men lead by the Army of the Potomac lead by Brigidier General Irvin 'Black Jack' McDowell.



This would have lead to a disastrous defeat; however,

The Army of the Shenandoah, and the Army of Virginia and the Norfolk Garrison, commanded by Major General PGT Beauregard all show up just in time to defeat McDowell. The battle lasted 2 weeks - it is now August 3rd 1861.

General Lee:

We have routed the yellow bastards! Virginia is saved. The road to Washington is open! Let us hit the bastards while they are still disorganized! :doitnow!:

With just 45k men? 4 and a half divisions?! You must be mad!

Mad?! I'm a General, not a miracle worker!

Forward! Battle Again!

Part 4: The coming of Stonewall

"There stands Jackson - standing like a Stone Wall. Let us die here and we shall conquer!"

"Always mystify, mislead, and surprise the enemy, if possible; and when you strike and overcome him, never let up in the pursuit so long as your men have strength to follow; for an army routed, if hotly pursued, becomes panic-stricken, and can then be destroyed by half their number. The other rule is, never fight against heavy odds, if by any possible maneuvering you can hurl your own force on only a part, and that the weakest part, of your enemy and crush it. Such tactics will win every time, and a small army may thus destroy a large one in detail, and repeated victory will make it invincible."



The Battle of Washington has begun - General Lee, after combining all the armies to himself, has decided to charge Washington DC and attempt to defeat McDowell before he can reorganize!



The result! A glorious Victory! Lincoln flees!

The Army of Northern Virginia with the 1st and 2nd Virginians, the 1st Texan Rifles, the 1st Texan Dragoons, the Louisiana Rifles and the North and South Carolina rifles 59k men defeat 68k men of the Army of Ohio (the renamed Army of the Potomac under McDowell).

How on Earth did you manage that Lee?!

We had some help! The enemy was confused and distracted!

No - no really - how did you pull that off?! You attacked the enemies capital with an inferior force and still won.

We owe it all to a flower!

A flower?!

Yeah, Daisy!



Would you want to fight that?!

Will Ben Kenobi successfully take and hold Washington DC? Will General Lee ever lose a battle? Will Stonewall Jackson actually appear in one of these updates? Find out next in Deo Vindice a CSAAR!
