Hall, Newman:

THE AMERICAN WAR. A LECTURE, DELIVERED IN LONDON, OCTOBER 20, 1862.

New York: 1862 12mo, 48pp, disbound, two old light rubberstamps. Good+. A history of the events leading up to the War, and an analysis of the southern states' alleged legal right to secede. "There could be no such thing as nationality were such secession to be recognized as lawful." If South Carolina can do it, so can Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. Nor did the seceding States have a right of revolution: With the Three-Fifths Clause, the South was over-represented in the Congress. Thus the South could not "aver that they had been tyranically overborne by the North." England should side with the North, particularly because emancipation of the slaves is just. Also published in London and Boston during this year. Sabin 29832.
