Rights of Southern States regarding trade, slavery and taxes

Description

This document was published as a warning to the Southern States regarding abolition, slavery and their rights regarding these issues presented by the federal government. The Tract included a group of letters written by residents of the Southern states as an effort to warn them against making the wrong decision in the upcoming Presidential election. The main concern of the Tract is the issue of abolition and slavery. The author of the letter “The South in Danger: Read Before You Vote” warns Southern residents against making the wrong decision and further impeding or restricting the rights of the Southern states regarding taxes and other important issues.
