PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Though the Constitution does not explicitly address the issue of secession, some of its text may be interpreted to deem secession lawful. One's opinion on this matter will largely depend on how he/she sees the relationship between the federal government and the states. If one believes that the States come before Union, he/she may see secession as lawful, and vice versa. This teacher-guided activity serves as a great warm-up to a discussion on the issue of Southern secession. It will introduce your students to contemporary opposing opinions on the nature of the Union and constitutionality of secession.

This activity is included in an in-depth primary sources activity packet on the constitutionality of secession – purchase it here.
