Fort Sumter: Anvil of War: Official National Park Handbook
Frank Barnes (au)
Early on the morning of April 12, 1861, a mortar shell fired from Fort Johnson in Charleston Harbor burst almost directly over Fort Sumter, inaugurating the tragic American Civil War. Two years later, Fort Sumter, now in Confederate hands, became the focus of a gallant defense in which determined Confederate soldiers kept Federal land and naval forces at bay for 587 days. The “first shot” of 1861 and the Confederate defense of 1863-65 are the subjects of this handbook. The narrative is based on an earlier work by Frank Barnes, onetime historian at Fort Sumter National Monument. Contents: The Fort on the Shoal; The Civil War Years; The Fort Today; and For Further Reading. Color and black and white illustrations.
