120: Common Threads Of Kentucky History - Divided We Stood
The Kentucky Historical Society and WUKY are back with another episode of 120: Common Threads of Kentucky History. This week we discover and discuss a number of unique stories tied to Kentucky's role in the Civil War. We talk with Amy Murrell Taylor, associate professor of history at the University of Kentucky about her book, Embattled Freedom; Journeys Through The Civil War's Slave Refugee Camps, which recently won the prestigious Frederick Douglass prize for the study of global slavery, and Chuck Welsko, manager of the Kentucky Historical Society's Civil War Governors project. We also hear a number of first-hand accounts of Kentuckians who were caught up in the conflict. Once again your hosts are WUKY's Alan Lytle and Greg Hardison & Stuart Sanders of KHS.
