Gents, may I suggest that there is no "right" answer to this question? I highly recommend "The Development of American Citizenship" by James Kettner (esp. Chapter 9-10) for those who want to understand exactly why this issue was so ambiguous for 19th century Americans.

I know we won't, but can we please just agree that there was obviously no consensus on this issue prior to the Civil War and talk about something else?
