    Tunnel Rats: The Greatest Prison Escape!

    Tunnel Rats: The Greatest Prison Escape!

    I sit with Author Douglas Miller to discuss his latest book, "The Greatest Escape: A True American Civil War Adventure." It tells the story of the largest prison breakout in U.S. history. It took place during the Civil War, when more than 1200 Yankee officers were jammed into Libby, a special prison considered escape-proof, in the Confederate capitol of Richmond, Virginia. 109 men dug their way to freedom, but this was only the beginning.

    Soldier, Spy, Escape Artist!

    Soldier, Spy, Escape Artist!

    Today I sit with author Mark Cannon who has written the book, "Lincoln’s Scout. The Diary of Horatio Cooke, Soldier, Spy, Escape Artist". Not only has Mark Cannon served 36 years in Law Enforcement, but he himself is an escape artist. This makes him the most appropriate person to tell the story of the escape artist who would become Lincoln's most trusted scout and eventually Houdini's mentor!
