Hmmmm. Texas Defender. If the supreme court ruled that secession was impossible in 1869 then it was also impossible in 1861. The supreme court doesn't make laws, it interprets them. The law was in place in 1861, but it wasn't until 1869 that court affirmed the meaning of the constitution.

Remember, I started by saying that all relationships are subject to dissolution. If some thing is not legal, like smoking marijuana, then work to change the law! Don't just say its my right to smoke and expect to do it without consequences.

My premise is that the South should have fully pursued a legal solution before firing on Ft sumter.
