It depends on what you consider secession. North Carolina was the last state who's legislature approved an ordinance of secession (May 20, 1861). However, both Tennessee and Virginia submitted their articles of secession to the voters for approval, and these ratifications occurred later. Virginia voters approved secession on May 23, 1861, while Tennessee voters approved secession on June 8, 1861.

So while Tennessee was the last state to "officially" secede, North Carolina was the last state to practically secede (as the voter ratifications were basically just a formality at that point).

During the Civil War Period of America's history, the last southern state to secede from the Union was Tennessee. Seceding in June (the 8th) of 1861, Tennessee joined the ten other states that had seceded in a bold attempt to form a new nation.
