Just ask any Native American about the faith and honor of the federal government.

Also, the abolitionist John Brown tried to incite a slave rebellion in Virginia. Virginia had many reasons to mistrust Lincoln and the federal government, not the least of which Lincoln's call for the remaining United States to put down the rebellion in the newly seceded Confederate States. This pushed Virginia to also secede, after which 6 more states quickly followed. Lincoln had chosen to ignore the Constitution and impose his own will by not allowing states to peacefully secede ultimately resulting in the deaths of approximately 620,000 out of a population of 31 million. A most dreadful price to "preserve the union."
