American Civil War Sesquicentennial Commemoration

On Friday, April 12, 1861, at 4:30 a.m., Confederate batteries opened fire on the Union-held Fort Sumter at the mouth of Charleston Harbor, within Charleston, South Carolina. This would become the first shots fired to the beginning of the American Civil War, which would last four long years.

In commemoration of this important historical event in our Nation's history, Northwest Press Books will be selling original Harper's Monthly Magazines from 1860 - 1865 within the 'Featured Items' of the website. These will be posted sporadically as commemorating the historical events they describe.

Please find these and other important Civil War related items at our website, WWW.NWPRESSBOOKS.COM
