I had read Drew's book Apostles of Disunion which he cites, so I was familiar with the speeches of the secession commissioners and I had read the Virginia debates on secession, but I did not realize that 90% of the stillborn constitutional amendments were about slavery.

I had also read the secession declarations which the Deep South states issued, which were basically all about slavery.
