To the States


To the States was published in Whitman's landmark collection, Leaves of Grass (1855).
Let America Be America Again
Frederic Edwin Church, Our Banner in the Sky, 1860
To the States or any one of them, or any city of the States, Resist
      much, obey little,
  Once unquestioning obedience, once fully enslaved,
  Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city of this earth, ever
      afterward resumes its liberty.
