Historical examples

I am surprised you mentioned the examples you did, but forgot the story of the western counties of North Carolina, which seceded from NC not once but twice. First giving birth to the state of Franklin, which was eventually aborted by military force, but then a second time as the state of Tennessee, which still exists today. And the deposed governor of the state of Franklin then became the first governor of Tennessee.
