  What I said was that the southerners accepted the results of the 1860 presidential election. They accepted the fact that Mr. Lincoln won the election and would become President of the United States.

  The southerners in the seven states you referred to chose not to have Mr. Lincoln as their president. They chose to exercise what they regarded as their constitutional right to leave the United States of America.
