Scarce North Carolina Imprint from the Run-up to the Civil War
1/20/2014 - Discovery Auction
Speech of T.N. Crumpler, of Ashe, on Federal Relations, Delivered in the House of Commons, Jan. 10, 1861.  Raleigh: Printed at the Office of the Raleigh Register, 1861. 8vo, stitch-bound, 16pp. 

Crumpler delivered this speech at a time of strong Union sentiment in Ashe County, which the following month would reject secession by an overwhelming margin, but the tide turned when Lincoln called for troops after the fall of Fort Sumter.  Crumpler enlisted as a Confederate cavalry officer in July 1861 and died in 1862 from wounds suffered at Willis' Church, Virginia.  In this speech, however, he charges that the dangers which now menace the Government are a result of a deliberate plot to destroy the Union, engineered by the Southern Rights Democrats, those disunionists who met at Charleston, in the National Convention held there last spring.  The abolitionists, a leprous spot upon our body politic, too bear a major share of responsibility: With hearts full of treason to the spirit of the Constitution, they have, for years, been digging at the foundation of our Government.  He passionately urges preservation of the Union, although he would soon die in rebellion against it.
