"Fort Sumter has surrendered, mother " shouted Thomas Somers, as he
rushed into the room where his mother was quietly reading her
Bible. It was Sunday, and the exciting news had been circulated
about the usually quiet village of Pinchbrook Harbor. Men's lips
were compressed, and their teeth shut tight together. They were
indignant, for traitors had fired upon the flag of the United
States. Men, women, and children were roused by the indignity
offered to the national emblem. The cannon balls that struck the
walls of Sumter seemed at the same time to strike the souls of the
whole population of the North, and never was there such a great
awakening since the Pilgrim Fathers first planted their feet upon
the rock of Plymouth. "Fort Sumter has surrendered " shouted the
indignant young patriot again, as his mother looked up from the
blessed volume. "You don't say so " exclaimed Mrs. Somers, as she
closed the Bible, and removed her spectacles.
