Buchanan to SC: No troop withdrawal

President James Buchanan
  • President Buchanan refuses the request of South Carolina commissioners in Washington to withdraw Federal troops from Charleston and says that it is the duty of Congress to define the relationship between the United States and the Commonwealth of South Carolina/1860
  • The US Senate Committee of Thirteen announces to the US Senate that they cannot agree on a report, ending efforts at Compromise in the Senate. Senator John J. Crittenden (D-KY) has one last hope which he will pitch -- a national public referendum/1860 

  • [SC SECESSION CONVENTION] The Convention adopts an act to form two regiments of infantry for the State of South Carolina/1860
