More Military History: Two Medal of Honor Recipients In The Same Battle Treated Differently By Historians

This particular interview has great historiographic value, for Mr. Laplander compares historical treatment of two heroes in the same battle who received different citations. These men worked as an incredible team, saving each other, and when a gun jammed one man stood up in the middle of a hail of bullets to fix it, rather than giving up and staying down. They would not be stopped--but history treated them both differently.

So scroll around the podcast, I think Mr. Laplander and I come in around 40 or so. Play around until you hear a girl's voice--I'm the only lady on the crew.
