Very desirable Tract #1 published in Charlestown, South Carolina, and distributed throughout the South. Its intent was simple . . . as the printed pre-title sheet clearly articulates, it is to bring Southern men to the point of decision, to make them declare publicly, even asking them to write their decision on their front doorways, will they resist tyranny against the rights of the South, or will they submit to New England rule. 

A fascinating tract in the run-up to the Civil War articulating the States Rights issues in play over the right to create policy around the slavery and the slave trade.
