April 12, 1861
The Civil War begins
Although President Lincoln had promised not to invade any of the states in the Confederacy "under any pretext," he sent supplies to Fort Sumter anyway. Suspecting a trick, South Carolina attacked Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861, and accepted their surrender on April 13. This was the opening battle of the American Civil War.
