Is this the same 'insurrection' that was written of at Holly Springs a few days or week back? This type of information, while one may even discount part of it, is enough to have cause considerable alarm once they were discovered. Of course these things were not in our lesson, for those of us who even had any, on the Civil War. Between the political bombardment and these reports, it does make a stronger case for the states belief they may need to step in to protect their interest since it seemed the Federal government wasn't about to try. Even if the seceeding states were not really ready to make that final break, circumstance brought about by events off Charleston Harbor sure did get that ball rolling. What a mixed up mess of obscure bits and pieces that when placed in a timeline and in the area they occurred, it's a no brainer.
