One of the things that made the battle of Gettysburg so compelling is that it not only saw an incredible clash of armies, but that an entire town was caught in between. Sarah Kay Bierle joins Chris Mackowski to talk about the civilian experience during the battle of Gettysburg. Want to hear their conversation? It’s available on our podcast, exclusively distributed on the Patreon platform.
