If it wasn't leagal in the 1860s, was it legal from 1810 to 1820? Because if it wasn't legal then, then the New England states were discussing committing an illegal act in 1814 when they met to discuss doing exactly what the Southern states did in 1860 and 1861. The only thing that ended their plans to secede was the end of the War of 1812, which caused them to think about seceding in the first place.
