Fateful Lightning 3.2

Nov 17, 2021

     McClellan’s Peninsula Campaign having come to nothing, President Lincoln calls upon John Pope to lead Union forces in a fresh advance upon Lee’s army near Gordonsville. Outmaneuvered and befuddled, Pope eventually attacks Stonewall Jackson’s corps near the Warrenton Turnpike, only to be taken in flank by Longstreet’s Rebels and driven back as far as the battlefield of First Bull Run. Music by Dennis Kennedy, text by Wiliam Hillenbrand, narration by Dave Inglehart.
