Sorry, but you are wrong.
The US Constitution at the time of the Civil War did not permit the tariff being laid on exports, only imports from outside the country.
I'll get back to you on the section of the Constitution that references this.
US Constitution, Section 9:
"No Tax or Duty shall be laid on Articles exported from any State."
Check it out for yourself and make sure it's how I quoted it above. That's the best way to verify.
