Fateful Lightning 2.2
Oct 27, 2021
Following the Battle of First Bull Run, the war’s center of gravity shifts westward to western Virginia (soon to become its own state), Kentucky, and Missouri. Though relatively obscure, these lesser engagements in the border states are destined to play an oversized role in the larger conflict, bringing to the national stage two rising stars in the Union war effort: George B. MacClellan and Ulysses S. Grant. Text by William Hillenbrand, narration by Dave Inglehart.
