Apostles of disunion : southern secession commissioners and the causes of the Civil War
Charles B. Dew (Author)
"In late 1860 and early 1861, state-appointed commissioners traveled the length and breadth of the slave South carrying a fervent message in pursuit of a clear goal: to persuade the political leadership and the citizenry of the uncommitted slave states to join in the effort to destroy the Union and forge a new Southern nation."
