The Battle of Fort Sumter was the bombardment of Fort Sumter near Charleston, South Carolina by the Confederate States Army, and the return gunfire and subsequent surrender by the United States Army, that started the American Civil War.

I found this article in one of Daddy’s 1861 newspapers concerning Fort Sumter. ( this was either through a NY or Boston paper...I’m not sure which at the moment.) The soldier’s letter was especially interesting.

If this is of interest for folks to read the article in it’s entirety just say so and I’ll be glad to share the information.
