America is divided, and it always has been. We're going back to the moment when that split turned into war. This is Uncivil: Gimlet Media's new history podcast, hosted by journalists Jack Hitt and Chenjerai Kumanyika. We ransack the official version of the Civil War, and take on the history you grew up with. We bring you untold stories about covert operations, corruption, resistance, mutiny, counterfeiting, antebellum drones, and so much more. And we connect these forgotten struggles to the political battlefield we’re living on right now.

Necessary and much needed!!!’

As a soon to be 50 year old white male raised in a conservative environment (I actually voted for Bush in 00’), learning more about this country’s LITERAL history rather that it’s MYTHOLOGICAL history is crucial to perspective!!! You’re really on to something here!!!

“The great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it in many ways, and history is literally present in all that we do.”
