One of the most important decisions South Carolina had to make in its history was whether or not to secede from the Union.

  • The three different view points on the issue of secession in SC were the Unionists, Cooperationists, and Secessionists.
  • The Unionists believed that South Carolina should remain apart of the Union and that the Constitution was well equipped to protect them. The Cooperationists believed that South Carolina should secede from the Union, but only with the support of other Southern states. The Secessionists believed that secession was the only answer for South Carolina.
slide14

Secessionists were also nicknamed the Radicals and the fire-eaters. They were different from the Cooperationists because they were not concerned about the decisions of other states and felt it was important to concentrate on what was best for South Carolina.

  • The Secession Convention was held in response to Abraham Lincoln’s victory in the presidential election. South Carolina officially seceded on December 20, 1860.
