James Henry Hammond Quotes: The Moment This House Undertakes To

The Moment This House Undertakes To Legislate Upon This Subject Slavery, It Dissolves The Union. Should It Be My Fortune To Have A Seat Upon This Floor, I Will Abandon It The Instant The First Decisive Step Is Taken Looking Towards Legislation Of This Subject. I Will Go Home To Preach, And If I Can, Practice, Disunion, And Civil War, If Needs Be. A Revolution Must Ensue, And This Republic Sink In Blood.
