Two new episodes of the Capital District Civil War Round Table Podcast are now available.
In the October episode, Gerrit Smith biographer Norman K. Dann discussed his book Practical Dreamer: Gerrit Smith and the Crusade for Social Reform. Recorded from Smith’s Land Office in Peterboro, New York, Dann talked about Smith’s activism, philanthropy, involvement in politics, and his relationship with John Brown.
In the latest episode, author Gene Barr talks about his book A Civil War Captain and His Lady: Love, Courtship, and Combat from Fort Donelson through the Vicksburg Campaign. This is a Civil War love story you will want to hear.
You can listen to both podcasts here.
