Mark, Ah yes, it did rally southerners and it did lead to Virginia getting off the fence and seceding. So it initially benefited the new confederate government.

Hellcat, I read the previous thread, Thanks for reminding me. With the exception of " it would have happened to somewhere else anyway", I didn't find any real answers to the question of the thread, "What would have happened of the south ignored Ft Sumter"

As for your point about belligerent. I suppose anything the north had done other than let the south go would have been considered belligerent. Maybe if I lived in the south at that time I would understand.

Since I am thankful slavery was ended, it was ended by the war, and the war was started at Sumter, I suppose the firing on Ft Sumter was a good idea.
