And why did slavery figure so prominently in those wily Southerners' Declarations of Secession?

What was featured in South Carolina's declaration was not slavery but the failure of the north to enforce the provision in the Constitution requiring the return of fugitive slaves. In other words, we didn't break the compact, you did.
