As the first Southern state to leave the Union, South Carolina was both at the epicenter of the secession movement and witness to the first shots of the Civil War. South Carolina Goes to War traces the evolution of this conflict, placing the Palmetto state within the broader context of the battle over states rights, the presidential election of 1860, and the political wrangling that took place in Columbia before, during, and after the demise of the Confederacy.
