Most of the people who know about it call it The bloodiest four years in American history that begun after Confederate shore batteries that by then was under General P.G.T. all was good until Beauregard open fire on Union that was held at Fort Sumter that’s in South Carolina’s Charleston Bay. After the opening of the fire by general the next 34 hours, 50 Confederate guns and mortars went ahead and launched more than 4,000 rounds at the most poorly supplied fort. On April 13, the U.S. but Major Robert Anderson surrendered the fort. But Two days later, the most vocal by then U.S. President Abraham Lincoln went ahead and issued a proclamation that called for 75,000 volunteer trained soldiers to quell the Southern for “insurrection.”
Before the war as early as 1858, the ongoing conflict that was between North and South just over the issue of slavery had led Southern leadership to hold a discussion over a unified separation from the States. But By 1860, the majority of the slave states were openly threatening secession if the party that was so potential to win that term the Republicans, the anti-slavery party, won the presidency as they knew it will end the trade. But republican still won and Following Republican Abraham Lincoln’s victory over the divided Democratic Party that was on November 1860, the South Carolina immediately initiated secession proceedings as they didn’t want to stop slavery. According to the people who had filed On December 20, the South Carolina legislature passed the “Ordinance of Secession,” which fully declared that “the Union now subsisting between South Carolina and other states, under the name of the United States of America, is hereby dissolved which made lincoln to think about the solution.” All happened but After the declaration, South Carolina thought about seizing forts, arsenals, and other strategic locations within the state as they were on their own. Within the six weeks, not less than five more Southern states which are Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana–had followed South Carolina’s lead in the name of following their own track.
They realized that they cant make on their own and that’s why on February 1861, delegates from those states convened to establish a unified government that will make a state of 6 states. Jefferson Davis of Mississippi was subsequently elected as the first president of the Confederate States of America. But when When Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated that’s on March 4, 1861, a total of seven states had seceded from the Union that’s the USA, and federal troops were held only at Fort Sumter in South Carolina, Fort Pickens off the Florida coast, a handful of minor outposts in the South. But after four years after the Confederate attack on Fort Sumter, the Confederacy was fairly defeated at the total cost of 620,000 Union and Confederate soldiers life.
