Ep. 0134: Battle Cry of Freedomishness: The Not So Civil War Part 4

I was originally going to discuss the song “Battle Cry of Freedom” and the Emancipation Proclamation, and then cover another major battle or two at the end. However, by the time I got done talking about the Proclamation, I had more than enough material for an entire episode, so decided to just stop there for now. Hope you enjoy!
