Civil War

The American Civil War began April 12, 1861 when Confederates under General Pierre Beureguard opened fire at 4:30 a.m. on Ft. Sumter, Charleston, South Carolina with fifty cannons.

The Civil War lasted from 1861 until 1865 and led to over 618,000 casualties. While a vast number of people believe the war was about slavery, it was much more complex. Social and economical differences between the North and the South played a large role as did state rights versus federal rights. The Abolitionist Movement began to rise and with the election of Abraham Lincoln as President and his views on slavery sealed the fate of our country and its opposing viewpoints.
