A secession convention in Charleston: One with few pickup trucks and overalls

Following up on the last post about a secessionist monument proposed for Patriots Point, I'll point out a piece about the recent secession convention in Charleston. 

The Eighth Annual Abbeville Scholar's Conference was last week and focused on "state nullification, secession, and the human scale of political order."

While upfront this doesn't seem terribly interesting, Chris Haire over at the Charleston City Paper has done a good job covering it and showing how this group is a bit different than your run-of-the-mill "we hate the North" group.

Take a read here.
