This is a black and white illustration of Fort Sumter near Charleston, South Carolina, under attack by the South Carolina militia during the Battle of Fort Sumter in 1861. It ended with the surrender by the United States Army, beginning the American Civil War. The illustration depicts a large stone building, surrounded by water with cannon balls drawn as streaks arching toward the building. A United States flag is depicted as flying near the center of the building and smoke is depicted as billowing from the roof of the building. "Bombardment of Fort Sumter" is captioned beneath the illustration. This illustration is from volume four of Abraham Lincoln : A History by John G. Nicolay and John Hay.
