This a keystone broadside held only by the highest valued Confederate collections. "Charleston Mercury Extra: Passed unanimously at 1.15 o'clock, P.M., December 20th, 1860. AN ORDINANCE to dissolve the union between the State of South Carolina and other States united with her under the compact entitled "The Constitution of the United States of America." With text: "We, the people of the State of South Carolina, in convention assembled, do declare and ordain, and it is hereby declared and ordained, That the ordinance adopted by us in convention on the twenty-third day of May, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight, whereby the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified, and also all acts and parts of acts of the General Assembly of this State ratifying amendments of the said Constitution, are hereby repealed; and that the union now subsisting between South Carolina and other States, under the name of the "United States of America," is hereby dissolved. THE UNION IS DISSOLVED!" Professional repaired, general toning, about VG. In the November 6,1860 General Presidential Election Lincoln won on a minority vote. Of the total 4,682,069 votes cast, Lincoln received 1,866,452 which is 39.9%. The eighteen states voting for him were all above the Mason/Dixon line. He received no electoral votes in fifteen of the thirty-three states. His name was not even on the ballot in ten Southern states. Lincoln's opponents together totaled 2,815,617 which was almost a million votes more than he got. Accordingly, upon arrival of the news of the Republican victory, the South Carolina General Assembly on November 10, 1860, called for a Convention of the People of South Carolina to draw up an Ordinance of Secession. Delegates were elected on December 6, 1860. On December 17, 1860, the Secession Convention convened in the Baptist Church in Columbia. The spirit of Nationalism, Sectionalism, and Secessionism filled the air! One observer said that restraining the spirit of the Convention was like restraining the wind. On this first day, the Convention passed a unanimous resolution to Secede from the union.
