Ask A Gettysburg Guide #48- Biddle's Brigade- with LBG Charlie Fennell

11/22/2021
Charlie Fennell dropped by the studio to talk about one of the lesser-talked-about brigades of the Army of the Potomac (in spite of their high casualty rate)- Biddle's Brigade. Technically Rowley's Brigade, Biddle's Brigade arrived on the First Corps line late in the morning on July 1, 1863. It was during that fight that they would receive the majority of their 66% loss. The fighting was intense for this brigade. So why don't most people hear a lot about it? "Because they were placed in...

Addressing Gettysburg- Men Is Cheap with Brian Luskey

10/11/2021
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...
