Making the political relationship of the states very lopsided.
The last slave state admitted into the Union was West Virginia, by Abraham Lincoln's administration.
I would ask specifically WHO in the South wanted slaverly in every state? It certainly was not everyone in the South, since it was the U.S. Congress who admitted this states into the Union with the South and at the beginning of the 1800s also outlawed the slave trade. It was the U.S. Congress that approved the use of the U.S. Navy to patrol the coast of Africa in ally with Great Britian to eliminate the slave trade in the 1830s, 40s and 50s. It was the Confederate Congress who included the same the slave trade restrictions. Read Alexander Stephens', VP of the Confederacy, speech on the inclusion of states as free in 1850, he certainly did not believe in FORCING slavey on anyone who did not wish it.
"Supplying the garrison there was in no way an act of aggression on the Gov't's part. S. Carolina was the aggressor there."
Fox's plan for the relief of Fort Sumter was an armed amphibious assault by a fleet of armed ships and assualt troops. The O.R. disproves the notion that the aggressor was South Carolina or the South. The documented history prooves Lincoln wanted a war and would provoke a war either at Ft. Sumter or Ft. Pickens. The documents are very clear on this point.
