We, the Confederate States, claim this fort as our own!
The event that triggered war came at Fort Sumter in Charleston Bay on April 12, 1861. The Confederate army on that day opened fire on the federal garrison. Four more slave states seceded and joined the Confederacy.
By the spring of 1865 all the principal Confederate armies surrendered, and when Union cavalry captured the fleeing Confederate President Jefferson Davis in Georgia on May 10, 1865, resistance collapsed and the war ended.
The abolition of slavery didn’t put an end to Afro-Americans’ pain. They obtained the political rights, but not the civil ones. Racial segregation began all over the United States. In the South, racial cults, such as the Ku Klux Klan, were born.
