Publisher Description

Discover the events behind the first engagement of the American Civil War, the Battle of Fort Sumter, which unfolded from April 12 to April 14, 1861, in this captivating audiobook.

The heart of the Southern secessionist movement was in Charleston, South Carolina. This bustling harbor town on the southeastern coast of America was home to politicians, civilians, and militia loyal to the newly formed Confederate States of America. These “Rebels”, as they were known to the Northern Yankees, were just itching to start a real fight with the federal government. The Confederates considered President Abraham Lincoln’s government to be tyrannical in its intentions to abolish slavery and permanently alter the Southern way of life.

In this audiobook, you will learn: 


That both sides of the divide, North and South, were arrogant and presumptuous about the potential outcome of secession
How the Battle of Fort Sumter was the moment that split America in two
Why holding Fort Sumter was a brilliant political move by President Lincoln 
About the men who suffered within the fort during its bombardment
Why only six out of 60 guns could be employed for Sumter’s defense
That Charleston was the symbolic key to the start and the end of the Civil War
Why the Federals never managed to recapture the fort
That April 14 was the fateful day that linked the beginning and end of the American Civil War
