Excerpt from Nullification and Compromise: A Retrospective View

A generation has passed away arid another has taken its place since the chivalry of South Carolina assumed a hostile attitude towards the government of the United States, and undertook, in the plenitude of an assumed ah solute and paramount sovereignty, to nullify certain laws of the national government, and forcibly to resist their exeem tion within the limits of her territory. This was an impor tant event in our political history. It was ohe of the out bursts of that irrepressible conflict between freedom and slavery about which so much has been said and written, and which is now raging with accumulated intensity. Be lieving as we do, that a great mistake was committed by our government on that occasion, and that we are now suf fering the bitter consequences of that mistake, it may be useful to review the history of the nullification controversy, and to learn wisdom from the lessons which it incul'cates. Many active politicians of the present day were then either unborn or too young to feel an interest, and to take a part in the discussions and measures to which that controversy gave rise. Others, of a more advanced age, may have for gotten them in the lapse of intermediate years, and may not now have within their reach, the necessary documents to refresh their memories. As history is philosophy teaching liv example, it is well occasionally to pause and listen to its teachings.
