I can't remember where, but at one point I remember hearing that a large number of the people who supported secession at the higher levels of government had gone to the same college in South Carolina. Obviously I know that South Carolina had a history of that sort of thinking, but I wonder if anyone knows whether there's any truth to this claim and where I can find information about it.

Welcome from the Railroads and Steam Locomotives Forum. I know the Citadel was in Charleston and was popular. I think another school was in Columbia, but whether it was military or not, I don't think so. It is possible to look into some of the prominent men during the Secession Conferences they began in Columbia, until an outbreak of smallpox forced them to move it to Charleston. There should be biographies readily available. We have one forum here that may help;
