    We wanted it! It was rightfully ours!

    Go occupy Wall Street or something if that's your opinion.

    Just because South Carolina seceded didn't mean it wasn't their lawful property anymore.
    They relinquished it when they either abandoned it, or were forced to abandon it, the fore happened all over the south.

    Which they didn't do until they were fired on.

    I'm not sure which tribe it was. I'll have to research that and get back to you.

    Yeah, but the Confederacy never took it back. They lost.

    We've been over this. South Carolina seceding did not represent transfer of title to Ft. Sumter.
    The Confederate guns in Charleston pounding the hell out of Fort Sumter damn sure did, though. Major Anderson lawfully surrendered the fort to the Confederates. Pudy much made it Confederate property, at that point.

    Not to mention, the fort's guns threatened the safety of civilians in Charleston.

    It's no surprise that you totally missed the comparison.
