1 Title:   A. A. Echols letter to Governor Emory Washburn  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Echols, A. A.  
  Dates:   1860 November 12  
The collection consists of a letter from A. A. Echols, dated November 12, 1860 from Savannah, Georgia, to Emory Washburn, former governor of Massachusetts. This lengthy letter, prompted by Lincoln's election six days earlier, expresses early Southern reaction to that election, Civil War causes, and the Southern course of action. Echols, apparently a long-time friend of Washburn, mildly criticizes him for joining the Republican Party, predicts that the effect of Lincoln's election will be peaceful secession, and proposes some commercial realignments between the North and South.
