  • Right, but he also stated that states had no right to secede from the union
  • On the 4th of December, President Buchanan condemns Northern interference with slave policies of Southern states
  • Then on the eleventh, Major Don Carlos Buell delivered a message to Major Anderson from Secretary of War Floyd. Anderson was authorized to put his command in any of the forts at Charleston to resist their seizure
  • On the tenth, South Carolina delegates met with Buchanan and believed he agreed to not change the military situation in Charleston
  • Correct, and Floyd would later go on to join the Confederacy in fact
  • And later in the month, Floyd said Anderson violated the President's pledge to keep the status quo pending further discussions and the garrison should be removed from Charleston
  • What happened on the 12th???
  • Secretary of State Lewis Cass of Michigan resigned. He believed President Buchanan should've reinforced the Charleston forts and was unhappy about Buchanan's lack of action
