All I can say is do a Google search of the southern Ordinances of Seccession for all of the states and then dig a little deeper into the Declarations of Seccession behind those ordinances. Read what they say, all have one common denominator about slavery issues (Fugitive slave act, negro suffrage, etc). Most only mention those type issues. Yes Georgia talked about the tariff but no one else did (explain that Lew Rockwell). IMO, Texas had the best grievance about not being protected against the Indians but the emphasis everywhere was on slavery and other issues surrouding blacks.
