Best Opportunity to Meet With Fellow Secessionists and Plot the Demise of the U.S.

Abbeville Institute Scholars Conference

Staff Pick

Secessionism isn’t just for neo-Confederates anymore. It’s for our Yankee brothers and sisters too. And the eighth annual Abbeville Institute conference was proof of that. At the gathering of secessionists held at the Francis Marion Hotel, there were some Johnny Reb types in attendance, but, by golly, there were also a few Yanks there as well, including two members of the Second Vermont Republic, a group of left-leaning peaceniks who want to break away from the Union. Of course, their cause is just as lost as that of their Southern brethren.
