Fateful Lightning 3.1

Nov 10, 2021

     In the wake of the Union defeat at First Bull Run, George B. McClellan turns the Army of the Potomac into a formidable fighting force yet reveals few gifts for field command in the Peninsular campaign. After advancing to the outskirts of Richmond via a round-about, amphibious route, McClellan retreats and the campaign ends in humiliating failure. Text by William Hillenbrand, music by Dennis Kennedy, narration by Dave Inglehart.
