What Led to the American Revolution?
This is an episode chock full of information on what led to the American Revolution told in an entertaining way. Since July 4th is right around the corner, we figured we would go old school with the next two episodes.

Celebrating Father's Day and Masculinity
Father's Day is coming up and The Sons of History are celebrating early. Though Dustin and Alan aren't fathers, they are sons to some really great dads. Along with that, fathers and masculinity have been coming under attack for longer than you might think. The Sons of History discuss why masculinity is an absolute necessity for a society to survive...don't worry, femininity is discussed too (and both are absolute necessities).
June Is Home to History's Epic Battles
You may know about the famous battle on June 6, 1944 - but do you know about the other famous battles that happened on June 6, as well as other famous battles and wars that happened in the month of June? The Sons of History find it very interesting that some of history's most famous conflicts started during this month. There is something about the hot month that brings out the hot war.
Dustin Bass and Alan Wakim discuss wars from the American Revolution, World War II, the Middle East, and even the Napoleonic Era.
Margalit Fox Discusses Her New Book, The Confidence Men
Margalit Fox joins the show to discuss her new book about a World War I prison escape that is practically too strange to believe. It is a tale of war, the Ottoman Empire, prison breaks, and...Ouija Boards? In her fourth book, The Confidence Men, Fox brings to life a story that was all but forgotten, during a period that few know: World War I on the Ottoman Front. This is a conversation not to be missed.
The Forgotten Gulf Coast Campaign of the Revolution
Most people know very little about Spain's assistance during the American Revolution, much less the important contributions during the Gulf Coast Campaign. Find out how Spain sought revenge from losses in the Seven Years War and how they got it, and how that benefited the Americans in countless ways.
Real History told by patriots
Love these guys. Keeping the story of our country relatable and accurate. Little humor, little drama, lots of information.
Another great episode
I cannot stand shows that de masculine the father. I guess that’s why I only watch TCM. I have two sons and they are really nice guys (so I’ve been told) and both work in HVAC. I hope we did right by them. They’re both engaged and I’d hate to see them bullied by their wives. Such a sickening sight.
Very informative and great reference to primary sources
