On consideration of basic fundemental political outlooks it appears as if the Jeffersonians formed the South and those Hamiltonians were of the Northern persuasion.

Given the political statistics mentioned above by Iron Duke the South was pressured by the possibility of becoming a vassal state of the North. Newspaper clippings I have of the period (The Buffalo Advertizer) show the interests of a Southern man just before the secession started. Kansas Territory, Industrialization, Federal Senate minutes. What was a Southerner doing reading a Northern paper? Why, they came into Norfolk on the Nashville during the south run to Charleston.
