I've been unable to find an antagonist who fired the first shot who's side went on to win the war.


Does anyone know of a major conflict where it's literally known who fired the first shot and their side went on to win the war?

    You could be right, Nick, thanks for answering. I was just wondering with a loose theory that the side that fires the first shot, as at Sumter, loses the war. If true, then who fired first at Lexington may finally be answered. Just fun to ponder on.

    It was a general question Phyllis with a pic a Ft Sumter used as an example. Your right about it being unknown there and that was a premise of my theory that the side that is known to have fired the first shot loses the war. If true then the redcoats
