THE PRESENT POSITION OF THE SECEDED STATES, AND THE RIGHTS AND DUTIES OF THE GENERAL GOVERNMENT IN RESPECT TO THEM. AN ADDRESS TO THE PHI BETA KAPPA SOCIETY OF DARTMOUTH COLLEGE, JULY 19, 1865.

Boston: 1865. 16pp, stitched. Old institutionlal rubberstamp in blank margin of title leaf. Good+.

Crosby deals with the knotty question of whether the seceded States are in the Union, or out of it. If they're in it, uh oh-- don't they get to vote on whether to adopt the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery? That seems crazy. So he opts for a practical solution-- in for some purposes, out for others. Out in particular when it comes to the restoration of the Union without slavery.
