SPECIAL: Civil War, Monuments & 2020 Podcast


CAPTURE OF THE J. R. WILLIAMS

The American Civil War and its leading lights have reappeared on the stage of American history and society in 2020—and in many cases, been physically knocked down from it. Why? iHeartRadio star Gwin Faulconer-Lippert and John talk about it, some Oklahoma connections, and John’s epic book The War Between the States: America’s Uncivil War, now in its fifth printing, in this special KTOK radio program and podcast.


(Oklahoma artist Neal Taylor's acclaimed painting The Capture of the JR Williams, above, depicts Cherokee Chief and Confederate General Stand Watie and his Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw horsemen ambushing a Union steamboat loaded with soldiers and supplies on the Arkansas River near Fort Gibson, Indian Territory.)
