The author also alleges that Lincoln, by faking an attempt to supply Union soliders at Fort Sumter, in Charleston harbor, South Carolina, enticed the Confederacy into firing the first shot of the Civil War in bombarding Fort Sumter. It is further alleged that Lincoln wanted the Confederacy to fire first, so that it would be considered the wrongful party by the nation and the world, in starting the Civil War.
