Why did the South win the first battle of the Civil War?

The battle at Bull Run was a Confederate victory because they had better field commanders than did the Union. Lincoln had not yet found a Union General who was willing to fight regardless of the casualties inflicted. The first battle of the Civil War is generally considered to be Fort Sumter. The South won that because it had more men, more artillery and could easilly besiege the Federal force occupying the Fort. The Battle of 1st Manassas/Bull Run was won because the Federal Army was exhausted from a long march around the Confederate flank which was relatively fresh and was then reinforced throughout the battle. This Battle was the first major battle of the war.

What surrender began Civil War?

The first "battle" of the Civil War was the shelling of Fort Sumter. Fort Sumter was a fort on an island just off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina. It was held by US troops while the South seceded and formed the Confederacy. President Lincoln tried to send supplies to the fort, and the governor of SC demanded the troops surrender, before the supplies could arrive. When the troops refused, Confederate troops began shooting artillery at the fort. The Union troops in the fort tried to shoot back but didn't have enough troops or guns, so there was no way they could win. The fort surrendered after two days of shelling. Nobody was killed, but during the surrender ceremony, there was an accident that did kill a few men- the first casualties of a long and bloody war.

After the Confederate attack on Fort Sumter, four more states joined them, and the war was on.
