How It All Began

At 4:30 a.m. on the 12 of April, 1861, General Pierre G. T. Beauregard directed his Confederate gunners to open fire on Fort Sumter. Thirty-four hours later a white flag flying over the fort ended the bombardment.The only casualty was a horse. It was a bloodless opening to the bloodiest war in American history. American homes became armies headquarters. American churches and school houses sheltered the dying, and huge foraging armies swept across American farms and burned American towns. Americans slaughtered one another wholesale, in their own cornfields and peach orchards, along familiar roads and beside rivers with old American names. More than 3 million Americans fought in this war, and over 600,000 men, 2 percent of the total population died as a result of it. Tens of thousands more were wounded and maimed beyond recognition. In two days at Shiloh, on the banks of the Tennessee River, more American men fell than in all previous wars combined. At Cold Harbor, some 7000 Americans fell in twenty minutes. Men who had never strayed more than twenty miles from their front doors now found themselves fighting epic battles hundreds of miles from home. Between 1861 and 1865, there were over 10,000 battles and skirmishes fought on American soil, and we killed each other in great numbers - if only to become the kind of country that supposedly could no longer envision how that was possible.
