''The South Carolina officers left the fort at 3:20, warning Anderson that the bombardment --and, inevitably, civil war-- would begin in one hour.'' On April 12, 1861 Confederate troops fired the first shots of the American Civil War at Fort Sumter, situated in near the key southern city of Charleston, South Carolina. The Confederacy would hold the fort, despite several attempts at recapture, until near the end of the war.
Part of Eastern National's popular Civil War Series, the Fight For Fort Sumter explores the events surrounding Fort Sumter during years of the civil war. Written by award winning historian William Marvel and illustrated with breathtaking photographs from the era, this is a must have for anyone with an interest in American history.
