  1. I am not certain of the link you are seeking. The Southern succession originated in the great compromise in the US constitution ( http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/uscongress/a/greatcomp.htm ) and the 10th amendment to the Constitution. You may want to explore that. Sectionalism developed mainly as a result (before the war) due to population density, lifestyle, culture, and population differences. After the war, sectionalism developed from the above, and hard feelings developed in the war and after...remember the North Yankees ruled high and mighty in the South, embittering many for generations.
