PRAIRIE GARDENER: Fort Sumter: Shot through with 150 years of history

Published 07/03/2011, Grand Forks Herald

It’s been 150 years since the Confederates opened fire on this fortress, which is located on a small man-made island off the coast of Charleston. Those opening salvos were fired early on the morning of April 12, 1861, with the Civil War continuing until April 1865. These were the first shots of the Civil War with the battle continuing for two days before surrender. No one on either side died in the battle.
