It was early before sunrise on the morning of April 12, 1861 when the artillery batteries surrounding the Charleston harbor opened fire on Fort Sumter. The cannon fire was relentless, lighting up the dark southern sky. Folks woke up to the fireworks display but no one was surprised that this day had come. It was a game of chicken between the US Government and the newly formed provincial government now being called The Confederate States of America. South Carolina had declared it's succession from the union back on December 20, 1860 soon after Abraham Lincoln was elected the 16th president of the United States. Lincoln swore that the preservation of the union was paramount. For many his election was seen as certain Civil War. Six other states succeeded and in February of 1861 they had formed The Confederate States of America with it's capital in Montgomery, AL. It was in December 26, 1860 that Major Robert Anderson have moved his small band of troops from nearby Fort Moultrie to the island stronghold of Fo ...
Yesterday in 1864, during the Civil War, the Union ship USS Housatonic was rammed and sunk in the Charleston Harbor, SC, by the Confederate hand-cranked submarine HL Hunley, which also sank. The Hunley Sesquicentennial 150 years ago yesterday in 1864, the Hunley became the world's first successful combat submarine when she attacked and sank the USS Housatonic off the coast of Charleston. The Hunley signaled to shore she had completed the mission and was on the way home, but instead, mysteriously vanished with her crew of eight. Lost at sea for over 130 years, the Confederate vessel was finally located in 1995 by New York Times best-selling author Clive Cussler. After years of planning a recovery effort, the world watched on August 8th, 2000 as the Hunley broke the water's surface for the first time in over a century. She was brought to the Warren Lasch Conservation Center in North Charleston, South Carolina, a state-of-the-art laboratory facility designed to excavate and conserve the Hunley. The submarine ...
The Saluting Ghost of Fort Sumter Fort Sumter, located in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina has the distinction of being the site of the first act of aggression in The Civil War. As with most places with that amount of history, there are tales of ghosts surrounding Fort Sumter. But this ghost story does not come from the battle of the fort, but rather from the act of surrender... Union Army Major Robert Anderson was in charge of the fort on Thursday, April 11, 1861 when Confederate Brigadier General P. G. T. Beauregard sent three aides to the fort to demand its surrender. Major Anderson, without either the supplies nor the authority to properly defend the fort, stalled for as long as he possibly could. But the tactic was futile. At 4:30am on Friday, April 12, 1861 the Confederate Army opened fire on the fort. For 34 hours shells rained down on Fort Sumter. The Union soldiers did what they could to fight back, but it was of no use. On Saturday, April 13, Fort Sumter was surrendered to the Confederates. Sup ...
The carefully constructed box of British-made rifles was intended for the hands of Confederate soldiers. A century and a half later, after a failed blockade run, a fire and years resting in the sandy bottom of Charleston Harbor, the weathered container and its contents are instead a time capsule in the hands of conservators and archaeologists. “The last time somebody looked at those, and put them on crates, was about 150 years ago,” said J. Doug Bailey, a gun collector who has studied the Pattern 1853 Enfield rifle-musket for more than three decades. Twenty Enfields — the second most widely used infantry weapon in the Civil War after the Springfield — are being conserved by the Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, which acquired the guns from South Carolina. The crate carried by the doomed CSS Stono is currently on display at Sweetwater Creek State Park in Douglas County, west of Atlanta, while the preservation lab at Panola Mountain State Park is being ov ...

December 11, 1863- The Federal bombardment resumes on Fort Sumter and surrounding batteries in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina. An ammunition magazine is breached, exploding and killing 11 and wounding 41. Still no surrender. Averall's Federal cavalry continue the West Virginia raid on railroads and at Big Sewell and Meadow Bluff. The annual report and review by Confederate Secretary of War, James Seddon admits the current hardships facing the Confederate cause. Military defeats in Mississippi & Tennessee were costly. The Southern army's military readiness continues to suffer setbacks as desertion, straggling & absenteeism increases. The Secretary recommends a repeal of the current draft substitute and exemption policy.
I'm running a little behind this month but here is the list for December. When the over reaching federal government decided they needed to push the great Confederate States to see things their way. Some things may never change. But one thing is for sure. The battles, the lives lost, the rich history, the events up to and all through that war must NEVER be forgotten. We must continue to teach our children and grand children the heart and soul of their heritage. Do NOT expect them to learn it in schools. And don't expect if they study it, that any of it will be true history. Educate them on their heritage. Make them proud to come from a long history of fighters.

"Authoritarian Disdain" from Carolinaromance.com Story Page Our next story focuses on the government shutdown of 2013 as we go to the South Carolina low country into Charleston Harbor. On October 1, 2013, the United States federal government entered a shutdown after Congress failed to enact regular appropriations or a continuing resolution for the 2014 fiscal year. About 800,000 federal employees were indefinitely furloughed without pay, another 1.3 million were required to report to work without immediate pay, and many services were suspended; only those employees and services deemed "excepted" under the Antideficiency Act remained active. The most recent previous U.S. federal government shutdown was in 1995–96. A "funding gap" was created when the two chambers of Congress failed to agree to a compromise continuing resolution. The Republican-led House of Representatives, pressured by conservative groups such as Heritage Action,[4][5][6] offered several continuing resolutions with language delaying or . ...
CAROLINA DAY.on this day in 1776, Carolina colonists, including Catawba Indians, repelled a British Army force attacking Sullivan's Island across Breach Inlet from Long Island (now Isle Of Palms). Even more impressively, a cleverly constructed sand & native palmetto tree fort at the south end of Sullivan's allowed for a small force of patriots to send off a mighty squadron of Royal Navy warships in defeat at the mouth of Charleston Harbor. This was a tremendous victory for the upstart colonists. Many in London were upset by this wind of change in the colonies. Today, many in our great nation are disturbed by the words...patriot & liberty. These bold Carolina men were that & sought that...& they helped to change our planet. America is a beacon of freedom for all men. This freedom, this liberty, is perpetually earned by American patriots, particularly here in Charleston & South Carolina. God Bless America!
June 28th 1776, Fort Moultrie In late January of 1776, British Maj. Gen. Henry Clinton sailed from Boston, bound for Cape Fear, North Carolina. In Charleston, John Rutledge, a member of the Continental Congress, arrived in Charleston with information of a British move into South Carolina. Named as the newly-appointed President of the General Assembly that remained as the backbone of South Carolina's revolutionary government, Rutledge organized a defense force under the command of 46-year-old Col. William Moultrie, a former militiaman and Indian fighter. Moultrie saw Sullivan's Island, at the mouth of the entrance to Charleston Harbor as a good place suited to build a fort to protect the entrance from intruding enemy warships. Sullivan Island was chosen because at the time because it was a geographic obstacle that shielded the harbor. A large vessel sailing into Charleston first had to cross Charleston Bar, a series of submerged sand banks lying about eight miles southeast of the city. Col. Moultrie and hi ...
Launched 17 June 1852, the Star of the West was a 1,172 ton steamship,228.3 ft in length, with wooden hullside paddle wheels, and a two masts hoisted on a 32.7 beam. Originally built by Cornelius Vanderbilt to transport goods between NY and San Juan de Nicaragua beginning in October of that year, it later served as a merchant ship for railroad and shipping magnate Charles Morgan from 1853 to 1856. During the spring of 1857, the Star of the West contracted to the U. S. Mail Steamship Company to carry the U. S. mails from New York, with stops in New Orleans and Havana, to the Isthmus of Panama for delivery in California.       In January 1861, she was chartered for $1250 a day by the War Department to secretly carry 200 troops and supplies to reinforce Fort Sumter, South Carolina, and was the ship fired upon in the Charleston Harbor on the brink of the Civil War. Returning to New York, the ship was hired out to pick up Federal troops stationed in Texas, but while anchored off Pass Caballo bar, was capt ...
CONSERVATION FOR BIG GUNS THAT OPENED THE Civil War Sullivans Island, S.C. (AP) — Preservationists are using computer sensors and other high-tech methods to protect massive iron Civil War guns at a fort in South Carolina that fired on Fort Sumter to open the war in April 1861. The sensors and modern rust-fighting epoxy coatings are being used to preserve historic siege and garrison guns, some of which were used to lob shells at Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor when the war erupted. Union forces surrendered 34 hours after the bombardment started as the nation plunged into a bloody, four-year war. Ten massive guns from Fort Moultrie on Sullivans Island, which is part of the Fort Sumter National Monument, were recently conserved as part of an ongoing program to protect the historic pieces from the salty, humid air. The guns were cast in foundries both in the North and South a century and a half ago. The last of the guns, a 7-ton Union rifled Parrott gun suspended in a yellow sling held by a crane, was slow ...
May 23, 1900:Forgotten African American Civil War hero honored Sergeant William Harvey Carney is awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his bravery on July 18, 1863, while fighting for the Union cause as a member of the 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry. He was the first African American to receive the Medal of Honor, which is the nation's highest military honor. The 54th Massachusetts, formed in early 1863, served as the prototype for African American regiments in the Union army. On July 16, 1863, the regiment saw its first action at James Island, South Carolina, performing admirably in a confrontation with experienced Confederate troops. Three days later, the 54th volunteered to lead the assault on Fort Wagner, a highly fortified outpost on Morris Island that was part of the Confederate defense of Charleston Harbor. (The assault is portrayed in the movie Glory) Struggling against a lethal barrage of cannon and rifle fire, the regiment fought their way to the top of the fort's parapet over severa ...

A camera moves across a library desktop late one evening, after a historian has left for the night. Zooming in on Dr Sam Crawford's diagram of antebellum Fort Moultrie in the year 1860, located on Sullivan's Island in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina, a 3D model suddenly emerges from this page. After circling around in a panoramic pass, the camera swoops directly down into its inner courtyard and then reverses out through its main gates, before returning into the darkened silence of the study.
Civil War (1860-1865) Although most of the American Civil War was fought outside of Ohio's borders, the Buckeye State played a huge role in determining the outcome. Hundreds of thousands of Ohioans fought for the Union, and many of the North's leading generals were from Ohio. Few would dispute that Ohio's contributions were vital in determining the Union victory. The American Civil War did not officially begin until 1861, but tensions between the North and the South were reaching a crescendo by 1860, prompting several Southern states either to leave or to debate leaving the United States of America. The division between North and South finally erupted into military conflict when Conferrate troops opend fire on the Federal garrison at Fort Sumter, in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina, on April 12, 1861. Just as the nation divided, Ohioans were split over this conflict. Most Ohioans supported the nation's reunification, but some, known as Peace Democrats and others who called themselves Copperheads, vehemen ...

Great work by our friends at the University of South Carolina studying Civil War remains in Charleston Harbor
rp of Scott Carlson Who knew this? Not me, that is why I love reading history . (background info) - since Obamataxcare passed we have been flying the inverted American flag, “America in distress”. In 1832, in a modest attempt to relieve the Southern tax burden of excessively high tariffs (Tariff of Abominations 1828), the U.S. Congress passed the Tariff of 1832, a reform that promised to lower the rates to the 1824 levels (30 percent). This is where South Carolina threatened secession, and they refused to collect the tax at Charleston Harbor, sparking the ‘Nullification Crisis of 1832' (in which a South Carolina state convention voted to nullify the tariffs of 1828 and 1832). The South was paying well over 80 percent of the revenues used to fund the central government. This is the who knew part: In 1833, the Governor of South Carolina, James A. Hamilton, allowed the inverted American flag to be flown on a boat he was aboard as it navigated in to Augusta, Georgia, infuriating POTUS Andrew Jackson.
Monday June 16 1862 Despite its name, the town of Secessionville, South Carolina had been in existence for many years before the War of Southern Rebellion. Its capture was important to the Federal effort to recapture Charleston Harbor. This cause suffered a dreadful setback today when, completely against orders and all advice, Brig. Gen. H. W. Benham decided to assault the works from James Island. The attack failed utterly, his force of 6600 suffered nearly 700 casualties, and Benham was soon relieved of command and forgotten.

Did you know The Civil War began in 1861 as South Carolina troops fired on federal Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor?
During Andrew Jackson’s administration, South Carolina objected to U.S. government’s “tax of abominations” collected as Federal duties in Charleston Harbor. The Nullification Crisis ensued. Justification for the nullifiers was found in the U.S. Senate speeches and writings of John C. Calhoun. He defended slavery against the Constitutional provisions allowing its statutory regulation or its eventual abolition by Constitutional amendment, most notably in his Disquisition on Government. The crisis was averted when once General Jackson declared he would march an U.S. army into South Carolina and hang the first nullifier he saw from the first tree. Abraham Lincoln kept a portrait of Andrew Jackson above his desk at the War Department during efforts to defend the Constitution as understood by a national majority of people and states at that time.
