One of the concerns I have for our nation is how few Americans have a knowledge of their own history. The American Civil War was our bloodiest war with casualties surpassing even those of WW2. Today is the 150th anniversary of the war’s start. Thanks to the Common Constitutionalist for the reminder.

Less than two months after Lincoln was inaugurated President, the Civil War began APRIL 12, 1861, with Confederate troops in Charleston, South Carolina, firing upon Fort Sumter.
