Just finished reading South Carolina's secession document at

Same place that Tom got the Mississippi article I think.  Takes them quite awhile to get around to talking about slavery.  Those framers had some really good points about the circumstances surrounding the establishment of colonial independence from Britain and the very nature of the Union.

There are also some interesting points in there about how individual states have set aside the what SC perceived to be constitutional law to suit their own moral tastes.  It is a good read.  In contrast, the Mississippi document is just harsh.
