I still believe that The War Between the States is a more accurate term - but to keep with the last vestiges of Northern cultural imperialism - we'll call it the Civil War.
The war started 150 years ago last week. Though mostly a land war - the war at sea was critical in keeping the agriculturally based South from getting the money and material it needed to fight the North. The war also saw innovation and concepts that echoed in every naval war since - and teaches the lessons of innovation.
This Sunday's show will focus on that part - the role of both the United States and Confederate States Navy in this great conflict. Our guest for the first hour is author, lecturer, and Civil War expert William Connery. For the second half of the show we will have Matthew Eng, an Educator, Hampton Roads Naval Museum.
