Raymond is joined by John Dolan a.k.a. Gary Brecher a.k.a. The War Nerd for the last of three episodes about the origins and legacies of the American Civil War.  The nasty business of war is juxtaposed with the magnificence of artful warfare.  Followed by an interesting compare and contrast of Sherman's March to the Sea with Nathanael Greene's Race to the Dan River.  John talks about some of the major figures in his article, "The Confederates who should've been hanged."  This episode wraps up with a discussion on the effects of  the revisionist version of the Civil War had on Reconstruction, Jim Crow, and even into today.

Next Episode:  The War Nerd joins Raymond again to discuss the contemporary military developments in Russia, Ukraine, and Syria.  Don't miss it!
