E9: THE CIVIL WAR – A War Between Brothers (Part 2)

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius

“A War Between Brothers” (Part Two)

The sibling rivalry continues – Chris and Brad once again steal the show as they discuss the Civil War! (Not to be confused with the Marvel comics storyline.) Confederate military blunders, Union prison camps, weird facts about Lincoln, Andrew Johnson’s drinking problem, the complete and utter failure of reconstruction, and of course Civil War era amputations…
