The articles of confederation created a Permanent & Perpetual Union of states.
See Webster / Hane debates

******* Would Secession create a “fatal precedent” – this is the bedrock issue. Will the U.S. become a “rope of sand”? It definitely would become such if the states could come and go at liberty.
Northerners said that the “principal” of secession does not exist. If it existed you do not have a united states but disunited states. *********
Secession would confirm the opinions of the Europeans that this experiment in democracy could not survive. That it would be consigned to “the dust bin of history”.
