Maine Newspaper Believed South Would Win Independence

The Southern Confederacy of Atlanta reprinted an editorial arguing that “stern logic” indicated that the South would outlast the North and gain its independence, much like the American colonies had done in the American Revolution. This was a common assertion from many Southern newspapers; what made this one more interesting is it came from a newspaper in Maine.
