APRIL 15TH -

For two days Major Anderson and his brave garrison resisted the firing - then, alas, had to surrender and yesterday (Sunday) fired a salute to the Flag with his last powder - gave up the Fort to Beauregard - Oh! I wish I could see Major Anderson - the brave man to hold out so nobly for duty and country!
