A century and a half ago, on April 12, 1861, Confederate guns began firing on Fort Sumter.  The Civil War had begun.  Chambers of commerce and their members were deeply involved in that war.

To turn the clock back 150 years to see what your peers were up to then, simply click on the link below.  You will reach a chapter in a forthcoming book about the history of chambers of commerce.  The book is called The Magicians of Main Street.  The chapter is entitled, “Coming Together and Coming Apart.”  If you thought getting your chamber through the recession was tough, see how chambers handled the challenges of the nation’s bloodiest conflict.
