If you are trying to say that treason was committed by the states entering into a war against the federal government, you should read the 2nd amendment.

Treason:

"The betrayal of one's own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies."

"Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given."

"Under Article III a person can levy war against the United States without the use of arms, weapons, or military equipment. Persons who play only a peripheral role in a conspiracy to levy war are still considered traitors under the Constitution if an armed rebellion against the United States results. After the U.S. Civil War, for example, all Confederate soldiers were vulnerable to charges of treason, regardless of their role in the secession or insurrection of the Southern states. No treason charges were filed against these soldiers, however, because President Andrew Johnson issued a universal Amnesty."

When the Confederates fired on US forces at Ft. Sumter they "levied war against the United States". The 2nd Amendment does not provide for the armed overthrow of the United States government. The Constitution provides the means for the people to change government policy. Sheesh!

I'm sure you have proof of that.
