    While Virginia was one of the confederate states, South Carolina was the first to secede. The war started there too, with confederates firing on Fort Sumter.

    The original Smithsonian was a freak show! Washington still is.

    Obscure (and yet real) though it will be, I’d like to add to the list: Albert Hall, the thankfully demolished oldest-at-the-time dormitory on the campus of Catholic University, where I dwelt austerely for my freshman year….

    “While Virginia was one of the confederate states, South Carolina was the first to secede.”


    I think the distinction being made is more geographic than chronological; the “Confederacy begins” in Virginia because it’s the first Confederate state you hit coming from the North.


    If it read “Where the Confederacy began,” then yes South Carolina would hold the claim.

    Please note the graffiti on the water tower. “Cool Disco Dan” was a legendary DC tagger.

    not quite, the Utah territory was split due to slavery (Utah pro, Nevada anti) and Nevada was the first state to telegraph in it’s constitution, it did so on Oct. 31st to be able to vote (presubed to be for Lincon) in the upcoming presidental elections.
