As I recall it started when a bunch of nut case drunks started firing cannons on Fort Sumpter in the Charleston harbor and it ended in Virginia. The person who gave the order to fire on Sumpter later took his own life rather than live under Union rule. Sorry I watch so much PBS and read too much Shelby Foote.
However lobster is still only $12 a pound at the local stores in NC. Can’t comment on the quality as the cleaned blue crab from Virginia is on sale for $10 a pound. Crab salad, crab omlets on Sunday and gumbo…BTW it will be in the eighties tomorrow…living in the South…such a b***h.
