Locally Unknown Copy of Ordinance of Secession In early October 2013 a friend from the Chicago area mailed me this copy of his recently acquired lettersheet. It contains a printed copy of the Ordinance of Secession on the back page. Page one contains a letter dated December 29, 1860, Columbia, S. C. from one P. B. Smucker to "Brother Andrew."
