Veritas et Sapientia-John Adams Explains Why Secession Was Necessary For The 13 Colonies

Why Secession Was Necessary, as told by John Adams

Mandeville, LA[Editor’s Note – This letter was written to Abigail Adams while John Adams was ensconced with the 2nd Continental Congress in Philadelphia. I suggest a reading of all of Adams’s correspondence to Abigail of 1776 is a healthy exercise in patriotism as Adams words and intentions are [r]epublican in nature. – Ed. MC]

Philadelphia PA – G B has at last driven America, to the last Step, a compleat Separation from her, a total absolute Independence, not only of her Parliament but of her Crown, for such is the Amount of the Resolve of the 15th.

Confederation among ourselves, or Alliances with foreign Nations are not necessary, to a perfect Separation from Britain. That is effected by extinguishing all Authority, under the Crown, Parliament and Nation as the Resolution for instituting Governments, has done, to all Intents and Purposes. Confederation will be necessary for our internal Concord, and Alliances may be so for our external Defence.

I have Reasons to believe that no Colony, which shall assume a Government under the People, will give it up. There is something very unnatural and odious in a Government 1000 Leagues off. An whole Government of our own Choice, managed by Persons whom We love, revere, and can confide in, has charms in it for which Men will fight. Two young Gentlemen from South Carolina, now in this City, who were in Charlestown when their new Constitution was promulgated, and when their new Governor and Council and Assembly walked out in Procession, attended by the Guards, Company of Cadetts, Light Horse &c., told me, that they were beheld by the People with Transports and Tears of Joy. The People gazed at them, with a Kind of Rapture. They both told me, that the Reflection that these were Gentlemen whom they all loved, esteemed and revered, Gentlemen of their own Choice, whom they could trust, and whom they could displace if any of them should behave amiss, affected them so that they could not help crying.
They say their People will never give up this Government.  – Why Secession Was Necessary, as told by John Adams 17 May, 1776
