The Civil War's SesquicentennialOne Week at a Time
Hosted By: Dr. Charles Ross, Dr. David Coles & Dr. Jim Jordan
On the morning of April 12, Confederate artillery fires on Fort Sumter in Charleston harbor.
The next day, Major Robert Anderson and his men surrender.
It is either a day of glory or infamy, depending on where you stand. On this day in 1861, our Southern ancestors embarked on a second American Revolution as they attenpted again to declare their independence.
I highly enjoyed listening to this story, and I thank you Dr. Ross and Dr. Coles for creating this highly informative site. I have placed a permanent link to it on my brand new blog, http://www.civilwarledger.com
My first post on the blog was an article that I wrote called “The Fall of Fort Sumter”. I look forward to reading all of your posts here, and I will certainly learn much from them.
By the way, my stepdad and his dad lived in Farmville for many years, were both carpenters, and helped build much of Longwood College.
