Really learn a lot about topics I may have passed on previously. Contrary to some I also enjoy the hosts opening remarks which vary from sports to school happenings and everywhere in between. Thank you Gerry for years of great shows.

Gerry has a ax to grind...

If your'e not a NeoUnionist, then theres no discussion or"proper perspective" point of view in his narrow guidelines of Civil War history. I enjoyed the author who heaven forbid was critical of Sherman and stated along the lines that he wasn't a good military general. I knew that would rub Prokopowicz the wrong way. He didn't really reply but later on other episode made one of his snarky better than thou put downs which was obviously directed at guest who made a put down of beloved union war hero. Calling him( not by name) amateur historian, very weak after the fact he was on his podcast. Last thing, really liked Gary Gallagher and was surprised and sure Gerry was shocked. lol When Gary stated not all those Confederate soldier monuments were put up because of Jim Crow white supremacy and they were simply put up for memory honor southern soldier. Surprised because Gallagher normally rides hard on the one cause "slavery" and dismantling Confederate heritage and lost cause themes.
