The anniversary of the battle of Perryville was this week (October 8)—and we have a podcast about it!
ECW Chief Historian Cecily Nelson Zander and former Chief Historian Chris Kolakowski join host Chris Mackowski for a conversation about the 1862 battle. Kolakowski is the author of The Civil War at Perryville: Battling for the Bluegrass and a former site manager of the Perryville battlefield. Zander loves/hates Confederate general Braxton Bragg.
