To All,

"Let us, then, consider all attempts to weaken this Union, by maintaining that each state is separately and individually independent, as a species of political heresy, which can never benefit us, but may bring on the most serious distresses."

[Quote by Charles Cotesworth Pinckney of South Carolina, 1740-1824, Revolutionary War soldier, one of the authors of the US Constitution in 1787, speaking at the South Carolina Ratifying Convention in 1788.]

I credit the finding of this quote to my friend, trice, over at CivilWarTalk.

Sincerely,

Unionblue
