TBT - It was 150 years ago today, in the early morning of April 12, 1861, that the American Civil War officially began. This skirmish at Charleston's Fort Sumter, then one of only two forts in the Southern states that had seceded still under federal jurisdiction, was brief and ended on April 14 with the an evacuation of federal troops and rebel Confederate victory. The photograph below shows Fort Sumter on April 14, 1861, flying the Confederate flag.
Though Fort Sumter was the official start of a war in which the federal armies suffered more than 630,000 casualties and the Confederates some 483,000 (including 359,000 dead on the federal side and 258,000 dead on the Confederate), it was not the first unofficial battle of the war. When the framers of the Constitution gathered in Philadelphia, they generally punted the slavery question to future generations, agreeing to both the three-fifth compromise (in which slaves were counted as three-fifths of a person for representation, thereby increasing the political clout of the slaveholding South) and prohibiting Congress from prohibiting the slave trade for 20 years; further compromises—the Missouri Compromise of 1820, the Compromise of 1850, and the Kansas-Nebraska Act—all attempted to bridge the gap between North and South and forestall the possibility of Civil War.
