Secession Sesquicentennial

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the secession of 10 of the 11 states that made up the Confederate States of America. While South Carolina was the first to secede, on Dec. 20, 1860, the other 10 followed through the first half of 1861. This week marks the anniversary of Mississippi, Florida and Alabama’s secession. Next week is Georgia’s anniversary, and in the weeks that follow, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Carolina also will look back from the perspective of 150 years.
