What Secessionists Have Done

What The Secessionists Have Done Thus Far —  Abolished the Fourth of July; given up the Stars and Stripes; defrauded Northern creditors; stolen some millions of the National treasures; fired into an unarmed steamer; established a mock Constitution which they dare not submit to the people;  captured a half-starved fortress; lowered the price of niggers fifty per cent., and made themselves a by-word and a hissing throughout the civilized world.  — Missouri Democrat
