Apr 12 1861- American Civil War: The war begins with Confederate forces firing on Fort Sumter, in the harbor of Charleston, South Carolina
This should be great. I sent for ticket and plan on wearing my SCV Color Guard Uniform. Love old Charleston. Enjoyed our SCV National Reunion there last month and enjoyed visits to battlefield areas where my ancestors went to save the city twice during the war. It is like a double scoop ice cream cone with sprinkles for me. A night time outdoor masonic degree put on by the Grand Lodge of South Carolina in 1860's attire and at Fort Sumter. All proceeds goes to the Juvenile Diabetes Project.
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 ...

June 2, 1865: American Civil War ends. In an event that is generally regarded as marking the end of the Civil War, Confederate General Edmund Kirby Smith, commander of Confederate forces west of the Mississippi, signs the surrender terms offered by Union negotiators. With Smith's surrender, the last Confederate army ceased to exist, bringing a formal end to the bloodiest four years in U.S. history. The American Civil War began on April 12, 1861, when Confederate shore batteries under General Pierre G.T. Beauregard opened fire on Union-held Fort Sumter in South Carolina's Charleston Bay. During 34 hours, 50 Confederate guns and mortars launched more than 4,000 rounds at the poorly supplied fort, and on April 13 U.S. Major Robert Anderson, commander of the Union garrison, surrendered. Two days later, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation calling for 75,000 volunteer soldiers to help quell the Southern "insurrection." Four long Years Later, the Confederacy was defeated at the total cost of 620 ...

On April 12, 1861, at 3:30 a.m., one old friend received a message from another: surrender at once, or be fired upon “in one hour from this time.” The sender of the message was General P. G. T. Beauregard, a Louisianan who had been ordered by the newly formed Confederate government to take Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina. Beauregard had trained at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and gone on to become superintendent there, but had resigned after his home state seceded from the Union. Commanding Fort Sumter was Beauregard’s old instructor at West Point, Major Robert Anderson, a Kentuckian who felt heartsick at the thought of war between North and South. Beauregard had been one of his finest pupils, and the two had grown fond of each other. Yet Anderson would not surrender, at least not without a fight. His commander in chief, Abraham Lincoln, had pledged to “hold, occupy, and possess” the fort. “If we do not meet again on earth, I hope we may meet in Heaven,” Anderson ...
April 12, 1861-- Then on the northern states were called the Union and the southern states were called the Confederate. President Abraham Lincoln said he would fight with everything he had to keep the south states as a part of the United States. There then was a argument because there was a Union fort on Confederate land. The Confederate demanded that the Union soldiers leave there forts in Charleston, South Carolina,the fort was called Fort Sumter. The Union refused to leave the fort, and so what the Confederate decided to do was fire cannons at the fort on April 12, 1861. This was the beginning of the Civil War.
Uncle Tom Haley and the Anti-Union Confederacy - What Uncle Tom Haley needs to do is examine the real base of her party. If she did, she would realize that her southern political support still believes a woman should earn less than a man, still believes a woman’s place is in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant. Uncle Tom Haley would realize that the same progressive policies that gave labor a voice in the work place, is the exact same voice that pushed her cotton picking *** into the governor’s mansion. And maybe Ms. Haley should check the color of her skin and ask fellow republicans if her party believes she is a “sub-human”. Uncle Tom Haley should also realize that aiding anti-union billionaires (modern day plantation owners like the Koch Brothers) fighting the collective bargaining is fighting the law of the land, no different than South Carolina fighting the anti-slavery war 150 years ago at Fort Sumter. My, how the south has progressed. The Confederate States always hated organized labor which ...

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 ...
for grades 5 ( Amalfi and Minori ) Civil War Timeline The Civil War lasted from 1861 until 1865. The southern states wanted to have their own nation and be able to decide what laws to have. The north did not want the country to be broken apart. In the election of 1860 Abraham Lincoln stated that he wanted to stop the spread of slavery. The southern states said that if Lincoln won, they would secede (leave) the union. The southern states seceded from the union after Lincoln was elected. They formed their own nation, The Confederate States of America. The war began in April of 1861 when the Confederate Army took over Fort Sumter in Charleston, South Carolina. President Lincoln was forced to declare war. The war was a long and bloody. Over 600,000 men on both sides died. Over 1,100,000 were injured. The south was devastated. General Lee surrendered to General Grant on April 9, 1865 at Appomattox Court House in Virginia. The war was over. • Cold War The Cold War was a long period of tension between the d .. ...

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.
11-15-2013: Thanks to Mary Neal for this post. Mary's insightful remark: If YOU let Columbus, SC put homeless people in concentration camps without massive protests, which is the Nazi plan, you will reap just what you sow. comment on her post: South Carolina fired the first shot on Fort Sumter, starting the Civil War. General William Tecumseh Sherman, after destroying Georgia military resistance to the Union, embarked on the invasion of South Carolina, appropriately saying, "This is where treason started and this is where it will end." Unfortunately, however, agents of the Confederacy murdered Lincoln and Johnson turned back all the Southern white planters' lands originally given to emancipated black Southern former enslaved people to the white former plantation owners and that opened the road to the eventual defeat by the Ku Klux Klan and Southern white terrorists of the egalitarianism of Radical Reconstruction, and to virtual re-enslavement of black Southern people. This in turn re-made Southern sta ...

FORT SUMTER + 152 YEARS July 2013 by El Blanco Tortuga While visiting South Carolina this past month, I rode the ferry to see Fort Sumter, the first battle of the American Civil War. As I watched the calm waves of the harbor slip past in our wake, I wondered what lead up to that massive destruction of the War between the States. 490 thousand Southern Soldiers and 596 thousand Northern Soldiers gave their last act of devotion for an ideal that could be settled no other way. Men, women blacks, whites and many foreign troops bleed the ground red during those four years. 37 thousand widows and 90 thousand orphans sought to live after the war ceased at Appomattox. I learned that in the decade prior to April 1861, our country seethed with emotion, rage grew to volcanic proportions over the debate of slavery. The South felt the Federal Government connived to hem them in to a pre-determined path. The Northern states passed laws and demanded the end to slavery. No compromise existed that could find peace in this c ...
Jul 5, 1861: Union and Rebel forces clash at Carthage, Missouri On this day, the first large-scale engagement of the Civil War is fought in southwestern Missouri, signaling an escalation in the hostilities between the North and South. Missouri was the scene of some of the most bitter partisan fighting during the war, and the state was deeply divided after the clash at Fort Sumter, South Carolina in April 1861. The Missouri State Guardsmen, a force of 6,000 men commanded by Confederate Governor Claiborne Jackson and Colonel Sterling Price, were poorly equipped and outfitted mostly in civilian clothing. Their Union counterpart was a force of 1,100, mostly German-Americans from St. Louis, commanded by General Franz Sigel. Sigel's force occupied Springfield in late June, and then collided with the Confederates at nearby Carthage on July 5. Outnumbered, Sigel eventually withdrew, but was able to hold off several small attacks. By nightfall, the Union troops had retreated through Carthage and escaped a dangerou ...
What really happened at Fort Sumter? Did South Carolina decide to 'fire on bread', and keep the 'starving' garrison of Major Robert Anderson hungry? Did they fire 'unprovokedly' upon the 'American' flag? Did South Carolina 'want' a war? Which side, exactly, was the aggressor in this struggle? What else was at stake in this strife, besides 'preserving' a 'union' of states? We shall explore the published and documented telegraph dispatches among Major Anderson, Governor Pickens, and the Lincoln Administration. Filmed in the Charleston Harbor, at Forts Moultrie and Sumter, this video will shock you as to what really took place during these four uncertain and explosive months leading up to the 600,000 plus deaths of the Civil War, and what really happened at Fort Sumter. In their own words!
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 ...
they are great, much fun and success in South Carolina, hope you can see Fort Sumter or Fort Wagner, relicts from the civilwar
Abraham Lincoln was finally elected president. South Carolina seceded, followed by six more Southern states before he was even inaugurated! The Confederate attack on Fort Sumter in South Carolina led to Lincoln’s call for an army of volunteers from each of the states, which was followed by the secession of four more Southern states. The Civil War had finally begun. Oh dear...
I went to Charleston, South Carolina a couple of years ago. I remember as soon as I checked into the hotel, the lady at the front desk said, "Sir, all of the bars are on King Street. Would you like to see a map of the most popular night life?" To which I replied, "No ma'm, I don't care about any of that crap. But when does the boat leave for Fort Sumter?" Ah, memories.
This is the time of the 150-year anniversary of the Civil War. Not much said. It's much different from the 100th in the early 60's when men grew beards and women dressed in antebellum dresses to commemorate. Did you know that Alabama seized several federal installations in January, 1861, before the state had even seceded? Did you know that our secession was mostly a South Alabama matter with almost 40% of the 100 delegates to the convention voting against (including the two DeKalb delegates, John H. Franklin and William Overton Winston)? Did you know that CSA Secretary of War Leroy Pope Walker of Huntsville authorized the bombardment of Fort Sumter, South Carolina, by telegraph from Montgomery on April 11 to "start" the war? The history was complicated and full of intrigue. A good read.
This morning we visited a National Monument in Georgia. Fort Pulaski. It was built after the war of 1812 to help Fortify our Eastern shores. It played a part in the Civil War. Very interesting. Now we are off to Fort Sumter in South Carolina. We just passed into South Carolina through a Fancy brick gateway. It is sunny and 77°. yay!
February 21, 1829...Johnson Hagood (February 21, 1829, Barnwell, SC – January 4, 1898, Barnwell, SC) was a brigadier general in the Confederate States Army during the Civil War and the 80th Governor of South Carolina from 1880 to 1882. Hagood attended Richmond Academy in Augusta, Georgia, and afterwards graduated at the top of his class from The Citadel in 1847. He was admitted to the bar in 1850, but never practiced because he preferred life on the plantation. When the Civil War broke out in 1861, Hagood volunteered and was appointed a brigadier general and assistant adjutant general of the South Carolina Militia. His first commission in the Confederate States Army was as a colonel in the 1st South Carolina Volunteers. He participated in the Battle of Fort Sumter and the Second Battle of Bull Run, receiving appointment to brigadier general, effective July 21, 1862. During the 1864 Overland Campaign, Hagood brought a brigade north to Petersburg, Virginia, and fought under Major General Robert F. Hoke in ...
Black History Month - Day 18 To all my Navy buddies In 2004, the Army named its first ship after an African-American. That man was Robert Smalls. Smalls was born to a slave mother and a white father in Beaufort, S.C. As a young man, Smalls held several jobs in Charleston, S.C., and finally began working at the docks. He eventually learned to be a seaman, and then how to pilot a ship. In 1861, Smalls was hired as a deckhand on the USS Planter, the transport steamer serving Brigadier General Roswell Ripley, commander of the Second Military District of South Carolina. The USS Planter served the Confederacy as an armed dispatch and transport boat. Soon after Smalls was hired he became the ship's pilot. On May 12, 1862, the Planter's three white officers spent the night ashore. It was at that time that Smalls enacted a plan that he had been working out for some time. The plan was to take the Planter, pick up his family and some of the other black crew men's families and head towards the Union Army's blockade i ...

As y'all know, I was interviewed for a BBC story on secession. I was told today by the reporter that there is a very long line for the program and it will probably still be a month or so before it's published. She did share with me the transcript and I wanted to share it with y'all: Secession isn’t unheard of in American history. After all, it caused the Civil War. In 1861, South Carolina and six other slave-owning states left the US to form the Confederate States of America. No foreign nation recognized them though. Nor did the newly elected US president, Abraham Lincoln. That April the Confederates fired on Fort Sumter. A structure on the South Carolina coast that still belonged to the US. The Civil War began there. But ended with the South defeated, starved, and disillusioned. In 1865 they rejoined the US, but some Southerners have never accepted defeat. And consider themselves Southern Nationalists. “I view South Carolina as my country,” Michael Cushman told me. We were sitting behind the South ...
I just read this article and it started me to thinking. the State of Wyoming is thinking similar to the State of South Carolina. SC wants to give jail time to the Feds or anyone supporting ObamaCare in the state. SC is actually practicing Nullification! Now Wyoming is thinking similar concerning the 2nd Amendment. Any Feds messing around the state of Wyoming concerning gun control can get up to 5 years jail time. Again this is state nullification at work. So, here is my thoughts for anyone who thinks them useful. Looks to me concerning the 2nd Amendment the Feds window of opportunity is about closed and congress will do nothing. However Obama could actually call an Executive Order, which I think would be great! At the same time, since time is on our side, and considering SC and WY are now considering nullification of Federal Law, looks to me people in general, specifically in the South and Red states should go on the offensive. Many state legislatures from ALL states should be contacted and start their pr ...

If you'll notice, the official response by the White House to the petition signed by 125,000 to allow for peaceful secession for the state of Texas, that no Founder nor any of the organic documents such as the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, nor the Constitution itself were referenced in arguing against the petition. Only Abraham Lincoln, the WAR OF NORTHERN AGGRESSION, and the Supreme Court were used as their basis for denying the petition. Let me ask you: If they claim that the Founders left us a legacy for change by the ballot box, why was a President who was the closest we have ever come until now to being a DICTATOR, a war which was clearly instigated by Lincoln to turn popular opinion against the South (Before the firing on Fort Sumter most did not wish to force the South to remain in the Union, and revisionist history hides the fact that South Carolina sent a delegation to meet with Lincoln to NEGOTIATE secession), and the Supreme Court, which for most of its history a . ...

Stuff I learned from Saturday's college matchups Okay, I drank too deeply from the Steve Spurrier/South Carolina kool-aid as Florida pounded the Gamecocks 44-11. Perhaps not as big a shelling as Fort Sumter got that early April morn in 1861, but pretty close. The Gators are back in the conversation as a national power quicker than I would've thought. When the Gators converted three South Carolina turnovers into touchdowns, I thought "The Head Ball Coach" was going to eat his visor. Texas Tech has not been too kind to the new kids on the Big 12 block. First they made West Virginia tuck their tails and run, then went to Fort Worth to get a 56-53 overtime win over TCU.

South Carolina seceded from the Union December 20th, followed by Mississippi (January 9), Florida (January 10), Alabama (January 11), Georgia (January 19), Louisiana (January 26), and Texas (February 23). Jefferson Davis was inaugurated as the provisional Confederate President on February 18. After the bombardment of Fort Sumter in April, the Civil War had begun and Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, and Tennessee seceded as well. The Confederacy was growing rapidly, and the stability of the Union was in doubt.. IFand when PREZ.Obama is relected could we see some events such as this again...
Five myths about why the South seceded By James W. Loewen Sunday, January 9, 2011; 12:00 AM One hundred and fifty years after the Civil War began, we're still fighting it -- or at least fighting over its history. I've polled thousands of high school history teachers and spoken about the war to audiences across the country, and there is little agreement even on why the South seceded. Was it over slavery? States' rights? Tariffs and taxes? As the nation begins to commemorate the anniversaries of the war's various battles -- from Fort Sumter to Appomattox -- let's first dispense with some of the more prevalent myths about why it all began. 1. The South seceded over states' rights. Confederate States did claim the right to secede, but no state claimed to be seceding for that right. In fact, Confederates opposed states' rights -- that is, the right of Northern states not to support slavery. On Dec. 24, 1860, delegates at South Carolina's secession convention adopted a "Declaration of the Immediate Causes Which ...

Had a grand time with Tara, Jeff and grand kids.

Hello all! We are in South Carolina finishing up the last day of our vacation. We have really enjoyed our time with Uncle Chris and Aunt Amy. We have been to the beach several times, the aquarium, the market, many wonderful seafood restaurants, a boat tour of Fort Sumter, and beautiful downtown Charleston. Later this afternoon, we are going to take a carriage ride through downtown Charleston. Every day, Alyssa has said, "This is the Best Day Ever!" Then tomorrow, back home. I miss my Charlie boy! Oh, btw our computer is dead. So that is why I have been out of touch and off fb. Happy Birthday Randi and Jerri! Sorry I missed your birthdays. And to everyone else, Miss you too! I'll be back when we get a new computer, with lots of pictures too.
