Is Secession Legal Or Illegal?


Yes, there was a horrific war in America nearly one hundred fifty years ago fought in large measure over secession, but did Congress specifically prohibit secession in a constitutional amendment or other law? Has the United States Supreme Court or, for that matter, any other court across the land ever rendered a definitive ruling about secession?

    The Constitution states secession is illegal. Article 1, Section 10, Paragraph 1, in the Constitution states that "No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation."
