The Kentucky state legislature never approves a secession convention. The secession 'government' exists on paper and as part of the Army of Tennessee, it never exerts any authority.

Governor Magoffin is as strong a pro-secession supporter as can be. He says: "The people of Kentucky will never stand by with folded arms while those States are struggling for their constitutional rights and resisting oppression and being subjugated to an anti-slavery government."

The seceded states declarations of secession are their 'Declarations of Independence', carefully crafted and including the reasons for secession targeting both their constituents and posterity.

The reasons for secession are plainly stated and slavery dwarfs the list...
