"The Disunion Faction," Salisbury Carolina Watchman, April 9, 1861.

Title

"The Disunion Faction," Salisbury Carolina Watchman, April 9, 1861.

Description

The Salisbury Carolina Watchman published this article which was highly critical of the Secessionist movement.  In the piece, the paper chastised Governor Ellis and others for their actions. It described how the Secession faction wanted a Convention, but did not want the acts of the Convention voted on by the people.  This proposition had been voted down by the people on February 28 as being unconstitutional, but the Secessionists refused to give up and continued to press their agenda despite the clear will of the people. The paper encouraged its readers to remember that the disunionists in the state were trying to violate the Constitution without consulting the people.
