This Day in History

A friend pointed out to me today that this is an interesting date in American history.  On April 12, 1861, exactly 150 years ago, the first shot of the Civil War rang out at Fort Sumter in Virginia.  After 34 hours of fire from the Confederate forces, Fort Sumter had fallen, and the most devastating war in American history was underway.
