Only Secretary of State Robert Toombs opposed this decision
( The firing on Fort Sumter )

He told Jefferson Davis "This attack will lose us every friend in the North. You will only strike a hornet's nest. ... Legions now quiet will swarm out and sting us to death. It is unnecessary. It puts us in the wrong. It is fatal."
