Paddy54 Posted August 18, 2022 · Member Share Posted August 18, 2022 (edited) With Fort Sumpter fired on.... the beginning of the bloodiest part of US history began. An interesting fact that the attack on Fort Sumpter left no dead! The actual very first lives lost happen just ten miles from my home. You see Baltimore 1860 was a split city....Maryland a split state... 1861 Baltimore was under Federal control. And as stated the first casualties happen on Pratt st. As political unrest and Northern troops in place lit the powder keg thats fuse was short to begin with....blew...as the Pratt St. riots exploded so did the loss of life and the war between the states was now going full tilt.
