|Summary, etc.:||efforts of the new president, Abraham Lincoln, to maneuver through the shoals of turmoil. When all efforts to avoid a final break fail, the narrative reaches a climax with the Confederate assault on Fort Sumter, followed by the first major battle at Bull Run, a blood-letting that shattered the hopes and beliefs of those on both sides who had somehow expected a quick and easy war.|
