Douglas, Stephen A.:

SPEECH...ON THE INVASION OF STATES; AND HIS REPLY TO MR. FESSENDEN.

John Murphy, Baltimore: 1860 16pp. Disbound, title leaf foxed, else Very Good. Having broken irreparably over the Kansas issue with Southerners and his fellow Democrat President Buchanan, Douglas denounces the President for suggesting that the national government lacked constitutional power to protect Virginia from an alleged conspiracy-- amassing in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York-- to rescue John Brown by force. The plain language of the Constitution, requiring the United States to guarantee every State a republican form of government and to protect it from invasion or domestic violence, rebuts Buchanan. This Speech was part of Douglas's effort to return to the good graces of Southern Democrats in the presidential year of Johannsen Stephen A. Douglas. Towers also printed this speech in 1860, with a Washington imprint. Johannsen 724-725. OCLC 65298555 [7]. LCP 3220.
