"This diligent study discusses the reaction of five border states to the secession movement of 1860-1861. The states in question are Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York...The author demonstrates that there was a significant prosecession, pro-Southern sentiment in each of the states discussed. In many instances it was aligned with the Democratic party. The author also explains why the movement failed: the firing upon Sumpter unified sentiments in these states as nothing else could have." - publisher.
