Description

Fort Sumter, viewed here from the rear, could not be re-supplied without the Confederate forces in Charleston acquiescing; which they were determined not to do. As Major Anderson's garrison saw their supplies dwindle, South Carolina demanded that they surrender, and Lincoln indicated his intention to send food and other supplies. National attention focused on Sumter.
