Fort Sumter was encircled by South Carolina and could never have been
Lincoln even told Virginia that he would abandon the fort in return
for a pledge that Virginia would remain in the Union. At the time, it
was Virginia that was trying to find a solution to bring the confederate
states back into the union. They might have pulled it off if Lincoln
had given them the chance.
Seward had been promising Virginia all along that Lincoln would
abandon the fort, and the entire cabinet supported this action.
It was only Lincoln who was willing to risk everything on this one
issue and it sparked the beginning of the deadly conflict. The South
offered generous terms and the Union forces were allowed to march out of
the fort in a very dignified manner. No one was taken prisoner.
Thought it might be nice to have something other than "Huge Tits" posted
at this site.
