One wonders whether the brutality witnessed in 1861 would be repeated if New Hampshire seceded - massive troops along with today's deadly modern military equipment and Americans killing Americans.

If probably would if New Hampshire shelled U.S. troops in a U.S. facility on her way out.

That would be a certainty. It would no doubt also be a certainty, shot or no, with a Clinton as president.

Just clarification here:

When South Carlina seceded in December of 1860, all (previously) federal properties within her borders returned to the State.

Fort Sumter was OUR property, NOT federal property. It was within OUR territorial waters according to all international law.

For the tyrant Lincoln to reject Confederate peace emmissaries, then notify them that he would reinforce the troops was an act of war.

We drove the invaders out.

The tyrant Lincoln wanted a war, and he got a war.
