  1. To be clear regarding the states that succeeded after Fort Sumter, it was not the conflict in South Carolina that prompted their decision but rather Lincoln's call for all states loyal to the union to send troops to suppress the rebellion. Even though in the preceding months Virginia had voted several times not to succeed, it would not send it's citizens to fight against the other southern states. The condition of civil war, with U.S. soldiers poised to march through Virginia to attack the most southern states, prompted Virginia to reconsider and eventually vote to leave the union. North Carolina, also having previously rejected succession, now felt compelled to join its northern and southern neighbors, Virginia and South Carolina.
