Civil War Trust Animated Map: Fort Sumter

For research on my upcoming book, A Divided Cause, I am posting this video to describe the attack on Fort Sumter. Major Robert Anderson, from Kentucky, was put in charge of the Charleston Harbor defenses. Fort Anderson in Paducah, Kentucky was named after him. Paducah lit lanterns and hung them from their gates to show support for the Confederate army.
