This chapter deals with the secession convention, examining both the act of secession itself and what went on after the state seceded. The convention remained in session for several weeks after the initial act of secession and even returned for a short time in March 1861. The chapter highlights the postsecession work of establishing a system to handle this newly declared independence.
