Whether the Civil War was

preventable is a debate that began shortly after Appomattox and continues

today. But even earlier, in 1861, a group of Union-loyal Virginians-led by

George Summers, John Brown Baldwin, John Janney and Jubal Early-felt war was

avoidable. In the statewide election for delegates to the Secession Convention

that same spring, the Unionists defeated the Southern Rights Democrats with a

huge majority of the votes across the state. These heroic men unsuccessfully

negotiated with Secretary of State William Henry Seward to prevent the national

tragedy that would ensue. Author and historian Lawrence M. Denton traces this

remarkable story of Virginians working against all odds in a failed attempt to

save a nation from war.
