    Here is something that I ran across today and hadn't heard of before. In 1863 the Connecticut Democrats met in Hartford to nominate their candidate for governor. They also passed anti-war resolutions: That while, as citizens of Connecticut, we assert our devotion to the Constitution and the Union, and will hereafter, as we have heretofore, support with zeal and energy the authorities of the United States in the full constitutional exercise of their powers, we deliberately avow that the liberties of the people are menaced by Congressional and Federal usurpations, and can only be preserved by the energetic action of State authority; and we are determined to maintain and defend the honor of our State, and the rights of the people.
