This is our almanac page. Check back each month as we visit the events that shaped the War which holds so much interest for its students 141 years after the first shots rang out over Fort Sumter. We are starting at the beginning and will continue to re-visit the almanac for as long as interest persists. Would you like to know what events were taking place in the Civil War on your birthday or some other special anniversary? Contact us with your special date, and we'll get back to you!
