This week marks the ratification of the 19th Amendment – and, fittingly, a number of important moments in which women take a stand for what’s right.
Scott and Aaron discuss “hinge moments” in American history – those moments when suddenly, everything changes.
Scott and Aaron examine several Revolutionary War-related events that took place this week in North Carolina.
The Declaration of Independence is read, Hamilton shoots Burr, and the Liberty Bell is rung. Also, Thomas Edison is a liar.
Abner Doubleday (celebrating his 200th birthday this week) accomplished a lot in his life – or at least he claimed to, but Aaron ain’t so sure.
The Regulators are executed, New Hampshire ratifies the Constitution, Susan B. Anthony tries to vote – and in the present day, Aaron feels sorry for patent boards.
Supreme Court decisions, roller coasters, and events in colonial North Carolina that were critical in the history of American civil rights and liberties.
Scott and Aaron reflect on D-Day and the importance of World War II. Also, the Bill of Rights is introduced…and the shopping cart is invented.
Great historical figures (including Walt Whitman) celebrate birthdays; great historical buildings (including Duke Chapel) mark their dedications.
Scott praises WCHL, and we discuss great inventions in history – and the famous quotes that often go with them.
