The Lost Cause narrative would have us believe that Confederate monuments have always been celebrated, but people have protested them since they started going up. Historian Karen Cox unpacks how the United Daughters of the Confederacy used propaganda to dominate generations of teachings about the Civil War through textbooks, legislation, and popular culture—and how, after the war, the South and the North prized white reconciliation over justice for all.

CBS Eye on the World with John Batchelor CBS Audio Network @Batchelorshow Jeff McCausland #Unbound. The complete, forty-minute interview. May 21, 2021. Battle Tested! Gettysburg Leadership Lessons for 21st Century Leaders, by Jeffrey D. McCausland (Author), Tom Vossler (Author), Walter Dixon (Narrator), Gildan Media (Publisher). Audible Audiobook– Unabridged https://www.amazon.com/Battle-Tested-Gettysburg-Leadership-Lessons/dp/1642934534 In order to be a truly effective leader, it is necessary to learn as much as possible from the examples of history—the disasters as well as the triumphs. At Gettysburg, Union and Confederate commanders faced a series of critical leadership challenges under the enormous stress of combat. The fate of the nation hung in the balance. Each of these leaders responded in different ways, but the concepts and principles they applied during those traumatic three days contain critical lessons for today's leaders that are both useful and applicable—whether those leaders manage operations at a large corporation, supervise a public institution, lead an athletic team, or govern a state or municipality. In the twenty-first century, leadership is the indispensable quality that separates successful organizations from failures. Successful leaders communicate vision, motivate team members, and inspire trust. One must move both people and the collective organization into the future while, at the same time, dealing with the past. A leader must learn to master the dynamic requirements of decision-making and change.
In this episode, we finish up the story of the siege of Vicksburg. Once Grant crossed the Mississippi River with his army, it appeared that Vicksburg was doomed. In a brilliant campaign of maneuver, Grant isolated Vicksburg from the rest of the Confederacy. While worried about General Johnston's army, the Confederates were unable to coordinate a strategy to save the city. After an initial, bloody attempt to breech the city's fortifications, Grant settled in for siege. Worried about the health of his army and the civilian population, Pemberton surrendered to Grant on July 4, 1863. It was a key moment in the war. The Confederacy was split. The South's quest for independence was in jeopardy. Have a question, comment, or compliment? Contact us at email@example.com.

Liverpool is located 178 miles North West of London. A port and a city of colorful history, it has produced two Premier League Soccer Teams, The Beatles, countless actors and artists and has always been an immigrant melting pot. A key transportation artery during the Industrial Revolution, it played a role in the American Civil War facilitating the cotton trade, hosting a Confederate consulate and overseeing the building of a Confederate warship. Lincoln's assassin John Wilkes Booth is rumored to have fled to Liverpool, his ancestral home and lived incognito avoiding capture. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/james-herlihy/message
Just months after the Civil War ended, former Confederates had regained political footholds in Washington, D.C. In her overview of Reconstruction, Kate Masur notes how—in the face of evolving, post-slavery white supremacy—Black people claimed their citizenship and began building institutions of their own. Ahmad Ward then takes us to 1860s Mitchelville, South Carolina, where Black policing power, land ownership and more self-governance were the norm.
On this episode of Le Down I spoke with Elite Runner and Marathoner, Elissa Legault. She's always loved running and even dabbled in triathlon at a very young age, and returning to the sport reunited her with her childhood coach to pursue the marathon. Despite the pandemic Elissa managed a half marathon and marathon personal best. If she keeps it up, an Olympic qualifier could be within her reach one day.

Not yet quite a day of atonement and repentance for everyone, or even appreciation, but at least president Joe Biden took America one more step to official recognition today. Consider that ”the former guy” was honored by this day to make up for a different set of American atrocities and abuse, and that worked out pretty well. The pandemic might be declining, but we're still heading into winter, and that's never good for those things. The biggest dim-wit lunatic to avoid catching COVID-19 so far, Allen West, finally did get some, which sent him to the hospital, unfortunately not wising him up one whit. Even killing West probably wouldn't make him a bit smarter, but if it just saves lives in the long run it might well be worth it. Hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, and snorting cocaine do not cure COVID-19, just get the vaccine already. Karens across the political spectrum now demand to know why Joe Biden keeps infecting people, however it's the supply chain, stupid, and the stupid supply chain that's actually screwing things up for everyone. Oh no, 2022 so soon? Democrats plan to move the rest of their agenda onto the front burner while also figuring out how to take a trillion or so off the top. Republicans aren't as concerned about the midterms as they have a civil war scheduled just ahead of them. No more deep-state anti-Trump RINOS like… Steve Mnuchin... Donald Trump has all of his loyal soldiers in place this time, and brand-new Confederate statues to erect. Donald does wonder why the Constitution would even care about him, when he's never had a care about it.
When a Civil War substitute broker told business associates that "Men is cheep here to Day," he exposed an unsettling contradiction at the heart of the Union's war effort. Despite Northerners' devotion to the principles of free labor, the war produced rampant speculation and coercive labor arrangements that many Americans labeled fraudulent. Debates about this contradiction focused on employment agencies called "intelligence offices," institutions of dubious character that nevertheless served the military and domestic necessities of the Union army and Northern households. Northerners condemned labor agents for pocketing fees above and beyond contracts for wages between employers and employees. Yet the transactions these middlemen brokered with vulnerable Irish immigrants, Union soldiers and veterans, former slaves, and Confederate deserters defined the limits of independence in the wage labor economy and clarified who could prosper in it. Men Is Cheap shows that in the process of winning the war, Northerners were forced to grapple with the frauds of free labor. Labor brokers, by helping to staff the Union military and Yankee households, did indispensable work that helped the Northern state and Northern employers emerge victorious. They also gave rise to an economic and political system that enriched the managerial class at the expense of laborers--a reality that resonates to this day. Available here "Men Is Cheap" is published by the University of North Carolina Press.

During its glory days, the Gertrude was the fastest blockade runner in the Confederate fleet. But just 17 years later, it was just another dumpy old steamer on a lowly coastwise run, wrecked in what was probably an insurance-fraud scheme.

Confederate monuments are coming down every day in this country, but as Connor Towne O'Neill details in his book “Down Along With That Devils Bones,” we're still fighting a “Cold Civil War,” where monument removal is a change that is important symbolism but does not get at the systemic problems. Connor became invested in the conversations and arguments happening around Confederate monuments when he moved to Alabama and came upon a memorial for Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Confederate Army general and the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan--a man whose 200th birthday was just celebrated by Neo-Confederates this past summer. Connor shares the story of who Forrest was, the role he played in the Civil War, and why he's still a hero to some racist white southerners today. And though his busts have come down in Tennessee, there's much work to be done by white people, specifically engaging in conversations with one another about racism, white supremacy, and the factual history of this country. Because these Confederate monuments didn't start showing up until the turn of the 20th century, in what is believed to be an attempt to “tidy up the legacy of the Civil War,” and you know Black people weren't behind that one.

During the American Civil War, three men set off to find two hundred thousand dollars in buried gold coins. Tuco (Eli Wallach) and Blondie (Clint Eastwood) have known each other for some time now having used the reward on Tuco's head as a way of earning money. They come across a dying man, Bill Carson (Antonio Casale), who tells them of a treasure in gold coins. By chance, he tells Tuco the name of the cemetery and tells Blondie the name of the grave where the gold is buried. Now rivals, the two men have good reason to keep each other alive. The third man, Angel Eyes (Lee Van Cleef), hears of the gold stash from someone he's been hired to kill. All he knows is to look for for someone named Bill Carson. The three ultimately meet in a showdown that takes place amidst a major battle between Confederate and Union forces.For more Apex Mountain content, join our Patreon at: https://www.patreon.com/apexmountain If you liked this episode, please rate/review us on Apple Podcasts!Follow us on Instagram and Twitter: @ApexMountainPod.

Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and the 20th Maine, single-handedly saved Little Round Top from capture by Hood's Confederates. Everybody knows this, for, the movie tells us so. Right? Not right. They were one part of the fight for the rocky hill. Very little is told about Eric the Producer's favorite division in the Army of the Potomac, The Pennsylvania Reserves, and how they saved the other flank on Little Round Top as the fighting on the southern end of the field waned. Charlie Fennell joins us as we shine the spotlight on Eric who does a great job telling us about the PA Reserves.

“It is not as hard to get there as it looks . . . The real difficulty is to stay there after you get there . . . “ The Confederate assault of July 3, 1863 is one of the most famous charges in all of military history. But it was not the first time Confederates had traversed the same ground. July 2, 1863 also saw a brigade of Rebels march across the same field to try and break the Union line on Cemetery Ridge. Cross the rarely-visited Spangler Farm as we walk the path of Wright's Brigade to see how close they came to their goal. MEET AT THE VIRGINIA MONUMENT.

In a war of brother versus brother, theirs has become the most famous broken friendship: Union general Winfield Scott Hancock and Confederate general Lewis Armistead. Michael Shaara's The Killer Angels (1974) and the movie Gettysburg (1993), based on the novel, presented a close friendship sundered by war, but history reveals something different from the legend that holds up Hancock and Armistead as sentimental symbols of a nation torn apart. In this deeply researched book, Tom McMillan sets the record straight. Even if their relationship wasn't as close as the legend has it, Hancock and Armistead knew each other well before the Civil War. Armistead was seven years older, but in a small prewar army where everyone seemed to know everyone else, Hancock and Armistead crossed paths at a fort in Indian Territory before the Mexican War and then served together in California, becoming friends—and they emotionally parted ways when the Civil War broke out. Their lives wouldn't intersect again until Gettysburg, when they faced each other during Pickett's Charge. Armistead died of his wounds at Gettysburg on July 5, 1863; Hancock went on to be the Democratic nominee for president in 1880, losing to James Garfield. Tom McMillan, a lifelong student of the Civil War, has served on the board of trustees of Pittsburgh's Heinz History Center, the board of directors of the Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial, and the marketing committee of the Gettysburg Foundation.

Phil and Jake witness the triumphant return of Efrem Schulz-- frontman for Death By Stereo, Voodoo Glow Skulls and Manic Hispanic-- to rank marijuana, Band-Aids as fashion, and Yosemite Sam Mudflaps on the List of Every Damn Thing.Find Efrem on Twitter (@Efbystereo) and Instagram (@efbystereo). He's been real busy with his bands lately.; here's a check-out list: Check out the Voodoo Glow Skulls new album “Livin' the Apocalypse” and if you're in Southern California get tickets to their October 22nd show (unless you're reading this in the future). Check out Manic Hispanic's new album “Back In Brown” and get tickets to see them play with FEAR on October 29th (again, it helps if you're in SoCal and not in the future). And of course, check out Death By Stereo in general. If you have something to add to the list, email it to email@example.com (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: “Weird A.I.” Yankovich is an invention of Beth, Phil's wife. He's an artificial intelligence that does song parodies. We get into a lot of hologram talk. Here's a write-up of Jenni Rivera's hologram's appearance at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. And here's some info on the upcoming ABBA hologram show. The Tehachapi Loop is popular with railfans like Jake. We discuss fake train tunnels, and hate it when this happens. Here's the episode of Efrem's podcast Into the Weeds featuring Tommy Chong. “Barroom Buddies” by Clint Eastwood & Merle Haggard is a real thing! “Drinkenstein” is a song written by Dolly Parton (the current #1 on the List of Everything) & sung by Sylvester Stallone. It's from the movie Rhinestone which they starred in. We think we've gotten this wrong before in the past but for the record, Murphy Lee is not the guy who wears the Phantom of the Opera mask in the St. Lunatics. Murphy Lee and Kyjuan are the only members of the St Lunatics anyone can remember, and neither are the ones who wear the mask. That's Slo Down. He was a silent hypeman who ended up in a feud with Nelly because he felt he wasn't being paid properly. Here's YouTuber Linzor explaining her Band-Aid fashion. Hatless Slash is actually pretty common. Efrem surely meant to say John Schnieder when he was talking about John Davidson. In looking for a list of the most iconic mudflaps we learned that people seem to go with unadorned mudflaps nowadays. The “Skeleton Dance” cartoon is a big source of trauma for Phil's son every Halloween and has been since he was a toddler. He prefers the Donald Duck cartoon "trick or treat".

The National Park Service asked Americans if Lincoln needs "contextualization." Yes. We have also been told Confederate monuments needed to come down because they promoted a false "myth" of American history. So, what if other monuments the left likes do the same thing?

Austin's COVID stats have not only dropped below Stage 5 range, they've plummeted through Stage 4 and are now approaching Stage 3 - however, City officials remain reluctant to officially reduce local precaution levels due to a continuing lack of hospital capacity. Austin's rising homicide stats are in line with a severe spike in murders across the country - the FBI reports that nationally, murders in 2020 rose 30% from 2019 - and a UT professor says gun proliferation is to blame. Austin gets one of Texas' two new U.S. House districts - the new U.S. House District 37 - while new maps concocted by Republicans in the Legislature appear to minimize representation of Latino and Black Texans. Next Monday, October 4, is the registration deadline for the November 2 election which will involve Texas Constitutional amendments, and locally Prop A, a petition-driven ballot item on minimum police staffing for Austin - which itself may threaten the funding of the Austin Fire Department if passed. A Confederate monument will be removed from Lockhart's Caldwell County Courthouse grounds as a public fundraiser achieves its goal. The next Austin Restaurant Weeks fundraiser for the Central Texas Food Bank starts on Friday. Jeffrey Weinberger, longtime Austin restaurateur and namesake of Clarksville's Jeffrey's, has died at 74. ACL Fest puts tickets on sale, but cheaper prices might be available via Ticketmaster's exchange site - while Waterloo Records has decided to skip this year's Fest due to COVID concerns. After years of rumored closures, the Nutty Brown Amphitheater has announced the farewell shows for its longtime location on Highway 290. And a wet cold front arrives tonight and sticks around thru the weekend - ACL attendees, be advised.
On Tuesday's show: We remember Sissy Farenthold, one of the most prominent feminists in the Lone Star state and the nation. She died Sunday at age 94. Also this hour: Houston City Councilmember Martha Castex-Tatum answers questions about issues facing the city. You can send yours now to email@example.com. Then, Connor Towne O'Neill, one of the producers of the NPR podcast White Lies, discusses his book Down Along with That Devil's Bones. It examines the nation's reckoning with Confederate monuments through the lens of the fight over monuments to one particular figure from the Civil War: Nathan Bedford Forrest. O'Neill will speak at a virtual event with Blue Willow Bookshop Thursday night. And we learn more about the Fort Bend County Fair.
After the U.S. Civil War, somewhere between 8,000-20,000 Confederates fled to Brazil where they established their own colony. Even today, you'll see the Confederate Flag flying there as they celebrate the "Festa Confederada" every Spring. In this episode, we examine this strange immigration story and chat with Actress and Comedian Jackie Tohn.

Photo: Panoramic view of the Gettysburg battlefield CBS Eye on the World with John Batchelor CBS Audio Network @Batchelorshow Jeff McCausland #Unbound. The complete, forty-minute interview. May 21, 2021. Battle Tested! : Gettysburg Leadership Lessons for 21st Century Leaders, by Jeffrey D. McCausland (Author), Tom Vossler(Author), Walter Dixon(Narrator), Gildan Media (Publisher). Audible Audiobook– Unabridged https://www.amazon.com/Battle-Tested-Gettysburg-Leadership-Lessons/dp/1642934534 In order to be a truly effective leader, it is necessary to learn as much as possible from the examples of history—the disasters as well as the triumphs. At Gettysburg, Union and Confederate commanders faced a series of critical leadership challenges under the enormous stress of combat. The fate of the nation hung in the balance. Each of these leaders responded in different ways, but the concepts and principles they applied during those traumatic three days contain critical lessons for today's leaders that are both useful and applicable—whether those leaders manage operations at a large corporation, supervise a public institution, lead an athletic team, or govern a state or municipality. In the twenty-first century, leadership is the indispensable quality that separates successful organizations from failures. Successful leaders communicate vision, motivate team members, and inspire trust. One must move both people and the collective organization into the future while, at the same time, dealing with the past. A leader must learn to master the dynamic requirements of decision-making and change.

This week, we're talking about Fort McPherson. From its earliest days as the pasture of Charner Humphries, to local militia training ground, to a racetrack, to both Confederate and US Army bases, to prisoner of war camps - these two pieces of land have SO much history to tell.

The Southern Poverty Law Center estimates that there are about 2,000 Confederate Monuments in the United States. Baltimore took down four of its confederate monuments in 2017. In writer Clint Smith's hometown of New Orleans, the city has also removed four monuments. But as he reports in his recent book, at least 100 statues, parks, and streets in the Big Easy are still named after Confederate figures. The book is called How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning With the History of Slavery Across America. In this compelling, insightful and probing work, Dr. Smith takes us on a tour of sites that are important, in different ways, to understanding how America is confronting the legacy of slavery. It's a diary of visits to 8 sites in the US and one in Senegal, Africa, and Smith's reflections on how the history of each place is told, the decisions about what to include, what to ignore, and what is fabricated to create a particular, false narrative. Clint Smith holds a PhD in Education from Harvard. He's an award-winning poet, and a staff writer at The Atlantic. In the context of the uproar over Critical Race Theory and attempts to outright ban teaching about slavery and the history of race in America, Dr. Smith has produced a timely, beautifully written, and deeply personal account of how we reckon with America's original sin. Clint Smith joins us on Zoom from Silver Spring, Maryland. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Dr. Mary Trump is a clinical psychologist and businesswomen. She is also Donald Trump's niece. She is the author of the bestselling book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man. Her new book is The Reckoning: Our Nation's Trauma and Finding a Way to Heal. Mary Trump explains why so many Americans are still in deep denial about Donald Trump's enduring power and his ability to cause destruction and other harm to American society and the world. She warns that such denials and related fantasies about Donald Trump and his fascist movement somehow just “disappearing” or “going away” are a function of naivete and childish thinking rooted in fear, immaturity, and not reality. Mary Trump also details how white privilege and denial and trauma have all come together in this moment to prevent an effective response to Trumpism, the Jim Crow Republicans, and American fascism more generally. She warns that yes, Donald Trump and his followers do indeed want to physically hurt (and worse) those Americans and others they identify as the enemy. Chauncey DeVega explains that America's political elites on both sides of the aisle knew for a long time that Donald Trump represented an existential threat to American society per the “revelations” in Bob Woodward's new book Peril – yet, with few exceptions, they chose to be quiet and not warn the American people and the world. And Chauncey DeVega reviews several new movies including Flag Day, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, The Card Counter, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
