Georgia secedes

Georgia State Capitol at Milledgeville

Alexander H. Stephens
By a vote of 208-89, Georgia secedes from the Union, despite some Unionist support by moderate leaders such as Alexander H. Stephens, later to be Vice-President of the Confederacy. Lincoln’s election and the specter of his Presidency overcomes any Cooperationist or Unionist arguments./1861
