490Re: Stephens' Speech
- Jan 21, 2002Well it was a good guess but appraently wrong. The excerpt I am looking
for sounded like it came from Stephens speech but it does not appear
there. See if it sounds familiar to anyone.
Carman wrote: Southern leaders were firm " in the conviction that cotton
was King in England as well as the United States and that an
interpuption in its supply would be so serious in its consequences that
a new republic, where cotton was to be king and slavery its
corner-stone, would be welcomed into the family of nations as the surest
possible guaranty against the occurrance of such a disaster."
Sure sounds like Stephens, doesn't it?
