The Battle of Fort Sumter
  • A Brief History
  • By Yuridia Ramos ?

2
So.What was the battle of Fort Sumter? \ hmm
  • It was recognized for being the battle that
    started the American civil war!
  • And the Fort was named after General Thomas
    Sumter, who was a revolutionary war hero from
    South Carolina

Now, lets begin
3
OK, so I think we all know it happened in Ft.
Sumter, but Where was this place?

    Robert Anderson

    Brigadier General P.G.T. Beauregard

8
OKIt wasnt REALLY like thatbut you get the
point!
  • Now, seriously what actually happened?
  • Well, Abraham Lincoln's administration would
    not surrender the fort to the Confederates in a
    peaceful way.
  • SO
  • Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate
    States decided to take matters under his own
    hands

9
Why did the Confederates want Fort Sumter so
badly?
  • Well, Davis hoped that in seizing the command of
    Fort Sumter he could kick the northerners out of
    the South and help South Carolina secede to the
    Confederate States of America. He then sent
    P.G.T. Beauregard under his command to evacuate
    the fort.

10
And the Battle Began
However when Beauregard commanded Anderson to
evacuate the fort, he denied. And on April 12th
at 4.30am General Beauregard opened fire from
Fort Johnson in Charleston.
  • Union

  • -Casualties and Losses

  • Confederacy

After 34 hours of battle, Anderson surrenders to
Beauregard

Aftermath Confederacy Won! (And Civil War
Starts)
  • The result was war. However a neighboring Fort,
    Fort Pickens in Florida was retained by the Union
    and helped considerably in the blockade of
    Southern Ports.
  • The Confederates completed and strengthened
    Fort Sumter and retained it through several
    attacks in 15 months time.
  • Although retired , Robert Anderson returned to
    Fort Sumter in April 1865 for Union flag raising
    ceremonies.
