An exhibit concentrating on the buildup of forces and outbreak of major battles during the summer of 1861. Primary focus will be on South Carolina units and men involved in the First Battle of Manassas and other minor skirmishes in Virginia in that year, but the exhibit will also look at the implementation of the Union blockade of the Southern coast during the late summer and culminate with the fall of Port Royal, SC in November 1861.
