How to use secession in a sentence?

  1. Paul Preston:

    That’s secession. That’s what happened in the Civil War, they want to create a new country, and that’s just not going to happen. First of all, it’s illegal under our Constitution. There’s no base out here to support that.

  2. Vincenzo Scarpetta:

    The problem with Sturgeon's plan is that she appears to assume that if there's a referendum on Scottish independence before Brexit, then Scotland can remain a member of the European Union, this is a legal headache for Europe. Clearly the European Commission's position is that in cases of secession, the newly created state would have to apply from scratch.

  3. Hoshyar Zebari:

    Before, the Sunnis were very sensitive to believing (devolution) would lead to secession, to the breakup of Iraq but now they’re coming to terms with it.

  4. Alexander Hamilton Stephens:

    The real object of those who resorted to Secession, as well as those who sustained it, was not to overthrow the Government of the United States but to perpetuate the principles upon which it was founded. The object in quitting the Union was not to destroy, but to save the principles of the Constitution.

  5. Josh Doggrell:

    He asked me, 'What is the magic bean that would arouse our people to see exactly what was happening to them and how necessary the step of secession is?'.
