Description

Front: The legitimate government formed by seven Sovereign States on February 8, 1861. The citizens of these Sovereign States wholly trusted in the firm agreement made by their fathers and grand-fathers by the Declaration of Independence and subsequent U.S. Constitution. They therefore exercised their legitimate right of secession by voter referendum and concluded that they should form a government that suits them better. After the 16th U.S. President called for 75,000 troops to  invade these Sovereign States, six more joined the compact. The government was constituted formally on February 22, 1862

Back: The Order of Secession of the Sovereign States from the Federal Union is as follows:

South Carolina, December 20, 1860 – Mississippi, January 9, 1861 – Florida, January 11, 1861 – Alabama, January 11, 1861 – Georgia, January 19, 1861 – Louisiana, January 26, 1861 – Texas, February 23, 1861 – Virginia, April 17, 1861 – North Carolina, May 20, 1861 – Tennessee, June 8, 1861 – Missouri, October 13, 1861 – Kentucky, November 20, 1861
