The first military action by the Confederacy was the seizure of Federal forts Moultrie, Johnson and Pinkney in the Charleston Harbor on December 27, 1860. These forts were evacuated the day before and the garrisons were moved to Fort Sumter. In April of 1861, Fort Sumter was attacked by forces led by General Beauregard, and surrendered. These actions began the US Civil War.
