Following the American Civil War Sesquicentennial with day by day writings of the time, currently 1863.

NOVEMBER 22D—We have nothing additional to-day, except another attempt to take FortSumter by assault, which was discovered before the crews of the boats landed, and of course it was defeated. Since then some shells have been thrown into the city of Charleston, doing little damage.

This morning was bright and warm, the clouds having passed away in the night.
