    150: The Great War’s Aftermath: Coming Home, The Spanish Flu, & The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

    150: The Great War’s Aftermath: Coming Home, The Spanish Flu, & The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

    “I keep wondering if the Unknown Soldier is one of my men.”

    This is the story of the United States coping with and facing the aftermath of World War I.

    The American Expeditionary Force in France is breaking up but that means a lot of different things as doughboys occupy Germany, go fight in Russia, convalesce, or just head home. If only going home was so easy–for many, it’s a hard transition back to civilian life. One of the few familiar things they find in the States is a deadly strain of influenza: “The Spanish Flu.”

    Meanwhile, the world is in turmoil. War still rages in much of Eastern Europe and Ireland, communism and fascism are rearing their heads, and neither the French nor British are finding their new League of Nations Mandates easy to govern. But amid all these ongoing struggles, grieving Americans whose doughboy father, son, or brother disappeared in the war find solace visiting what just might be their loved one’s final resting place: the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

    11 (Second Edition): Southern (Dis)comfort & Global Conflict in 1779

    11 (Second Edition): Southern (Dis)comfort & Global Conflict in 1779

    “I reject your proposals … and shall defend myself to the last extremity.”

    This Is the story of the Revolution’s new hot spot: the South.

    After failing to crush the rebellion in the northern or middle states, British leaders hope to score some quick victories in the South, which they believe to be more loyal. Drawing support from loyalist and enslaved Americans, this new “Southern Strategy” enjoys a strong start as Savannah falls in late 1778.

    Other events around the world are changing the war too. A French fleet has arrived in the Americas. Meanwhile, Spain isn’t allying with the United States but it is allying with France (it’s complicated). Battles are raging everywhere from Gibraltar, to the Caribbean, to the Atlantic, and the Frontier.

    But as messy and global as the war is becoming, the Southern Strategy continues forward. In the South, Polish Count Casimir Pulaski gives his life for the Patriot Cause, and soon, the Continentals will suffer their greatest setback of the entire war as the British lay siege to Charleston, South Carolina. The Americans will also mourn a slaughter near the Carolinian border at the Waxhaws.

    10 (Second Edition): Duels, the Trials of Valley Forge, & the Battle of Monmouth

    10 (Second Edition): Duels, the Trials of Valley Forge, & the Battle of Monmouth

    “Stand fast, my boys, and receive your enemy!”

    This is the story of a miserable winter at Valley Forge (1777-78), a possible conspiracy, and George Washington’s last major battle before Yorktown.

    Continental Commander George Washington is loved by many in Congress and the Army. But he has his enemies too. Some see a path to pushing George out of leadership–but will this so-called “Conway Cabal,” which happens while Continental soldiers are freezing and starving to death, actually work? Either way, it will inspire one of the two duels we’ll hear about.

    Speaking of the Continentals, they have to learn to soldier properly if they’re going to win this war. Can a recently arrived, husky Prussian with a penchant for swearing make the difference? Welcome to America, Baron von Steuben. They’ll use these new skills in the sweltering summer-time Battle of Monmouth.

    9 (Second Edition): 1777—The Battle of Princeton, the Saratoga Campaign, & the Battles of Brandywine & Germantown

    9 (Second Edition): 1777—The Battle of Princeton, the Saratoga Campaign, & the Battles of Brandywine & Germantown

    “If old England is not by this lesson taught humility, then she is an obstinate old slut, bent upon her ruin.” - Horatio Gates

    This is the story of 1777’s Saratoga and Philadelphia campaigns. 

    Playboy and playwright General "Gentleman Johnny" Burgoyne is leading a Canadian-based invasion of upstate New York–and it's a tale of egos. From Britain’s Gentleman Johnny to America’s Horatio Gates and Benedict Arnold, a lot of Generals are looking out for "number one." But Saratoga is more than that; its outcome will help Ben Franklin score a full-on military alliance avec la France. 

    Meanwhile, George Washington is doing a dance with General Sir William Howe in PA. George loses battles; Howe loses his dog. And as the year’s end arrives, the towering Virginian is once again being doubted and facing yet another demoralizing winter’s camp at Valley Forge.

    First Christmas Special (Second Edition)! “George Wishes Some Hessians a Merry F’ing Christmas”

    First Christmas Special (Second Edition)! “George Wishes Some Hessians a Merry F’ing Christmas”

    “These are the times that try men’s souls.”

    This is the story of a Christmas Miracle at Trenton, New Jersey.

    George Washington’s army is exhausted, disheartened, battered, starving, freezing–all but broken. Sir William Howe’s mighty British Army has chased these American soldiers out of New York, New Jersey, and now, across the ice-filled Delaware River into Pennsylvania. Worse still for the Patriots, the British have captured Continental General General Charles Lee and scared Congress into fleeing Philadelphia. The Revolution appears all but defeated.

    But George isn’t ready to accept defeat. The Founding Father has made a list, checked it twice, and decided that the Hessian troops in Trenton have been naughty … neither patriot nor loyalist will soon forget Christmas of 1776.
