    Fort Sumter1 It would be an understatement to say that the Civil War caused unfortunate bloodshed and left a heritage of grief and bitterness in its path.

It was the only war fought on American soil by Americans, and for that reason the Civil War has always of interest. Ironically, but not surprisingly, the Civil War s
