Title: Message to the General Assembly on Secession
Author : Isham G. Harris, 1818-1897
Date Created: 1860-02-28
Abstract: Governor Isham Harris sent this message to the Tennessee legislature to transmit communications from the legislatures of South Carolina and Mississippi. He does not see the necessity of a convention of slaveholding states at that time, and believes that Tennesseans are loyal to the Constitution. He goes on to say, however, that Tennesseans have a "jealous regard for the rights of the States." They will join the resistance against encoachments upon States` rights first by use of Constitutional means. If that proves impossible because of "reckless fanatics" in the Federal government, then Tennessee will follow the example of "our fathers of 1776." He concludes by stating that Tennessee`s policy should be to exhaust every means for an honorable, Constitutional solution in order to stem the tide of agreesion and restore the era of good feeling in the country.
