Wonderful detail and insight

These programs are clearly done by folks who love the subject matter. The only oerson I enjoy discussing the Civil War as much is Shelbu Foote. With this I get two people of similar calibre.THANK YOU

Great history podcast!!

Extremely detailed, which real history buffs love. They took 30 episodes to get to Fort Sumter! Tracy and Rich take turns delivering the narrative which gives each episode a conversational feel. I enjoy Rich getting a little wound up about some of the less admirable people that pop up in the story and Tracey’s reigning him in-all in good fun.

Wonderful podcast

Hello Lincoln Cultists!😂 Thank you for what you do Rich and Tracy, I have been stuck on your podcast for about a month and I’ve made it to 117 (the episode where you are anointed Lincoln Cultists) about ASJ’s death. You are both very knowledgeable and the information and how you present it is quite enthralling. I can’t get enough. I fear the day I catch up with you guys and have to wait a week or two to hear each new episode 😨!! I hope to join the Strawfoot Brigade soon so I can hear even more of your great content. God bless!

well researched and funny

A husband and wife team. Loaded with insight, and a since of humor. It won’t take long till you hear the infamous outtakes of Tracy’s uncontrolled laughter, or the “Rich”comment when he gets a little extra wound up about Polk, or others as you go through the story. Although I am still catching up this is a fun history class.

Thorough Account of the war

I’ve read several reviews that state this podcast is biased. Having said that, I see or hear no indication of that. The facts are given and of course, opinions as well but, just because the opinions aren’t liked or the facts aren’t to the listener’s liking, does not make the show biased. Fair accounts are given.

Well done!

After dozens of books and papers during my MA in Military History/Civil War, these podcasts make basic sense out of many Civil War issues that are otherwise often obtuse and sleep-inducing with too much detail. Very nice and informative listening!

Absolute best

Y’all are the hands down absolute best podcast about history. Y’all explain events & details very clearly & have a wide verity of knowledge. I started out listening from the first episode a few weeks back & have not stopped listening since. I am glad there is a lot of episodes. I would love for you two to do another history series, as it would be immaculate just as this podcast is.
