Please join author Joel Moore and host Simon Barrett on a weekly exploration of the greatest upheaval in US history. There has been much written about the period, the leaders and battles explored at length. Often it is said that in a war it is the victor that writes the history books. In this case there is so much surviving evidence that history must remain neutral.
I enjoy delving into history, not so much to learn about the rich and famous, rather the poor and unknown Joel Moore is the author of 4 novels, he takes a really interesting perspective, the war as seen through the eyes of the child soldiers.
War makes little compromise or compassion for age. The child soldiers were a fact of life, in this introductory episode I want to introduce you to Joel Moore and the children soldiers.
