    [Texas C.S.A] A Declaration of the Causes which impel the State of Texas to Secede from the Federal Union: Adopted by the Delegates of the people of Texas, in Convention assembled, on the 2nd day of February, A.D., 1861; AND Ratified by the people by a vote of 46,000 to 13,000 on the 23rd day of February, A.D., 1861. Dallas: Basye Bros., Printers. 8vo. 8 pp. Disbound and stitched. Moderately age toned; generally fine.

    When South Carolina seceded in December 1860, Texans began calling for secession as well. A Constitutional Convention was organized and on Feb. 1, 1861, which voted overwhelmingly in favor of a formal ordinance of secession. Shortly thereafter, a Committee of Public Safety ordered the forced removal of 2,800 federal troops in Texas and the seizure of all Federal property. On Feb. 23, 1861, Texas citizens voted 75% in favor of a public referendum to ratify secession. Approximately 14,000 copies of the declaration were printed in Austin, including 2000 in German and 2000 in Spanish. This is a later printing made in Dallas.
