Battle of Fort Sumter

Awarded For Service During the Operation Period, 10-13 April 1861.
Believing itself superior in every manner to the people of the Northern States, the South presumed an immediate victory over the North simply by securing any early morale victory on Southern soil. On April 10, 1861, Brig. Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard, in command of the provisional Confederate forces at Charleston, South Carolina, demanded the surrender of the Union garrison of Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. Garrison commander Major Robert Anderson refused. On April 12, Confederate batteries opened fire on the fort, which was unable to reply effectively. At 2:30 pm, April 13, Major Anderson surrendered Fort Sumter, evacuating the garrison on the following day. The bombardment of Fort Sumter was the opening engagement of the American Civil War.
