Excerpt from Speech of Hon. Alfred Iverson, of Georgia, on Our Territorial Policy: Delivered in the Senate of the United States, January 9, 1860
Now, sir, ifi ever did maintain the doctrine of popular sovereignty, as explained, advocated, and enforced by the Senator from Ohio and the greatmajority of the northern Democracy, I have long since changed my opinion, and repudiated it as a heresy; and certainly, sir, it is more honor able to renounce error, when convinced of one, than to adhere obstinately to it. I commend the candor and honesty, as well as the courage and fortitude, which I have exhibited in this respect, to the imitation of the Senator from Ohio. But, sir, I fear that, instead of retracing the great error into which that Senator and thousands of his northern Democratic friends have fallen, he and they, under the lead of the distinguished Senator from Illinois, [mr. Douglas are plunging deeper and deeper into the abyss of political error and injustice.
