With this being the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil war I want to do a research project of "What else happened during that time." An example would be on April 12 1861 Confederates fired on Fort Sumter. That we all know. My research would be what was going on in Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Washington. I would like some thoughts from everyone if this is something that any of you ever thought about or would even give thought too.
