Here is a look at the contents of Fort Sumter: The Secession Crisis, 1860-61 designed by Mark Herman and from GMT Games. This is not a wargame but more a fast playing Card Driven Game that focuses on the events leading up to the eventual secession from the Union of the State of South Carolina in 1860, which led to the commencement of hostilities in the American Civil War in 1861.

If you happened to have missed them, check out our Action Point 1 and Action Point 2 posts on the game which take a look at the inner workings and mechanics of game play.
