I want people to pay attention here. Their are things missing from the national news that I would have expected to see by now. No stories of specifics of secession or who was going to secede, only speculation. No stories of Charlestons defenses or Fort Moultrie. At this moment, 150 years ago, people like Captain Doubleday are setting up their communications with Lincoln and there are no national concerns on those forts as of yet.
