Wow.

An avid fan of Civil War history, and especially the stories that have gone untold, this podcast fascinates me. It's blown the top off a lot of my assumptions, offering compelling new voices and perspectives that illuminate the past and shed light on the present. And the music! So well done; I can't wait for more. A must-listen.

great show

Takes a look at Civil War history through a series of exciting, pacy stories that aim to counter misconceptions and shed light on personal stories. Smashed through season 1, can’t wait for the next one.
