Segment B: The Battle of Williamsburg
The echo of musket fire and the scent of gunpowder will be heavy in the air this weekend in Colonial Williamsburg.  The historic area will be transformed into a war-ravaged battleground to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Williamsburg, a hard fought Civil War engagement.  We'll talk about the significance of this battle with historian and author Carson Hudson.

Scheduled Guest:

Carson Hudson – Historian, author of “Civil War Williamsburg”
