Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William Stewart Simkins (August 25, 1842–February 27, 1929) was a Confederate soldier and professor of law at the University of Texas at Austin. As a military cadet, he quite possibly fired the first shot of the American Civil War.His parents were Eldred James and Pattie Simkins. He entered the Citadel, a South Carolina military academy, in 1856.At daybreak on January 9, 1861, Simkins saw the signal from a guard boat, and sounded the alarm in the sand battery, alerting his fellow cadets to the arrival of the Union ship the Star of the West, which was attempting to ferry supplies to Fort Sumter. The cadets fired the first shots of the American Civil War. The Daily Courier at first said he had fired the first shot, although the official account later blamed a local youth named G. E. Haynesworth.
