"The what do you mean by a cage? Where was this cage? I'm not exactly sure because I didn't go. There I just know that I had a couple of friends and they were evacuating all of the. Guests from the OPRY Land Hotel, they were evacuating them to megantic high school, which is on up, may GAV, Inc. which is the street in which opry land hotel is on, and the high school is much higher, and of course had multiple gymnasiums and a place for people to go, so there are a couple of subdivisions which are down the street from me, which are at a lower elevation that they were evacuating, but they weren't. Coming to make you to evacuate me or anything along that line. But you would have evacuated if there was a place that would have taken you with the dog correct. Well I'm I'm with you on that I? There's no way I could evacuate and leave my dogs behind. That's a boy. That's a tough spot to be in. Very tough spot to be in and. The little puppy kept trying to jump off of the stairs, and into the water, and I grabbed by one leg, and just so thankful ended in dislocated. That point with the with the water rising. Did you even have the option of driving away, or could you not at one point? It came too quick. What was happening was just kept raining, raining raining and across the street, or across the river from me is a place called Inglewood, and it is a gigantic huge limestone bank very very high, so when they eventually let the waters out from the dam that acted as a third dam, and that's what pushed all the water over. The whole deck and everything I had catfish that were trying to jump onto my deck as you know, we are fishermen, whatever catfish like legends they like to hide underneath ledges, and so hiding underneath my deck, and trying to get up on to the deck, and that was very odd, and at that point in time it had rained for two days as I stated, and then the third day it was beautiful blue skies. Everything was beautiful, and we thought it had stopped so at that point in time. The water was in my garage show. The damage was done in the garage and. Was it if you walked into the garage? Has Up on was over your knees, or or what was the day? Had like four or five steps that went down to be level with the ground, so at first it was. Just barely into the garage, but the third day as we had been watching the weather channel I'm watching and watching and what we didn't realize is that we had been up for forty two hours. You know just just so worried and so concerned. Were watching the same report pretty much. They did not notify any of us that they were going to let these dams out. We live in a place. That's a peninsula right there off of Megalithic and it's called Two Rivers. The reason it's called two rivers is because you have the stones river that meets the Cumberland River. The Stones River feeds Percy priest, which is a landlocked lake,.

"John this is John that is the author of the new book terrible swift sword which is the life general Philip H. Sheridan but in detail you go through the battles date Sheraton is sad is glory but also you understand very clearly that the civil war was a catastrophe for both sides the not the murder the mass murder on both sides of the casualties were overwhelming and they came severely battle after battle stones river this is an effort by the southern divisions to destroy a Rosecrans's army who is Rosecrans and what does Sheridan do for in that day rose crammed was commander of the army of the Cumberland at that point and he was he was a good general overall he was in a great wall and he was very religious he's a Roman Catholic and many vent his army and the Confederate army for faced each other along stones river the end of eighteen sixty two last day of eighteen sixty two there about equivalent in size and interestingly both commanders Braxton Bragg was commander the Confederate army planned attacks at dawn on new year's eve on the right flank of the enemy yeah both of them so if the had attacked simultaneously they would have just gone and clockwise circle evidently but what happened was the Confederates attacked before Rosecrans army dead insured and was on the right flank of the the Union Army commander or division he was in the M. with cooks core and other to other divisions in the core and so during the night he and Josh would still who is one of his brigade commanders heard movement in the woods all night long like artillery moving men marching through the woods across from them and it seemed to them that the the Confederates were gathering for an attack they were alarmed so they want to cook and they reported to us who like two in the morning or so and would cook a will come up and they said as enemies massing for attack we set out don't worry about that were attacking in just a few hours and the other for well shared in hand so worried about her and so shared and got all his men up and fed and ready they were ready to go that four thirty in the morning under arms wholesale and about an hour or so later sure enough the Confederates attacked twenty thousand men cheered in at about six thousand in his division and the other two divisions had about as many but they weren't ready because the corps commander did not order those divisions to turn out so they they were just crashed they were making breakfast and coffee and everything the Confederates just rolled in there screaming you know their high pitched a fox hunters cried cheered ins division they were ready and they came in and they stop they they slaughtered them on this field one of them the aim below and the the children by the hundreds Joshua sills kill his good friend assured insuring later made the name to Ford after him in Oklahoma the way I read this Joe Sheridan's alertness with his friends as still saves Rosecrans's army he was not prepared for this attack he was not at all and so the Confederates they do stir rolled over those other two divisions Sherman's division stirred kept moving backwards but held them there number twenty thousand to sixty five hundred or something like that and for two hours they held them off while Roose Kranz was able to reorganizes army behind them and into decent defense noted here that it's just it's Sheridan's alertness but also his aggression he doesn't look for anybody else to help him he takes control of his men and they're very loyal to him at this point has he establish that rapport that we see later with the Calvary core yes I think yes he had given him the did so because of his regard for you ma'am you always see he made a point of always trying to find the best campsites for them making sure they were fed up and he took care of them he fought beside them and so they they really liked him he was very popular for his success he's now promote promoted to a Major General in the volunteers at a stones river and there are battles ahead we must mention Chickamauga because apparently it's still a controversy to this day Bragg versus Rosecrans at Chickamauga and brag brag gets the best of Rosecrans at the first and Rosecrans I don't wanna say he runs but he retreats in good time with Crittenden and McCook did you go with my cook as well but Sheridan doesn't leave the field and neither do do other parts of the Union Army and they make a stand here is Chickamauga remembered at the moment that brag exposed himself as a fool or did did people but it can still trust him after that even though they couldn't remove him from command well I think right after the battle the I mean they were related at the victory it was clearly a victory over a rose Kramden's army and the only reason it wasn't destroyed was because of general George Thomas who the rock of Chickamauga they call them right but is is brag given as victory that's no victory he loses more than than Rosecrans stuff he did but he drove from the field and what break was small line for and Jeff was that he allowed Rosecrans to retreat to Chattanooga and rather than immediately attack from there and this shattered army he decided to mount we'll we'll move on because the war and Philip Sheridan a weight as a we're on to the

"If there were two things if they're two things that I could fix tomorrow that I think would would help the country survive. There's a lot of choices. There's a lot of choices but two of the easiest really is the border and the debt. Now, we got a lot of other problems Boertien is actually number one on my list. But I mean, if, if we're going to be serious about saving our nation. We have to get the debt under control. We have to get borders under control. Nobody is talking about then fact yesterday. They had a hearing that went pretty awry in the house on reparations. Now we're a society that doesn't believe in the sins of the father being paid for by the sun. But that's not even this. This is the sins of the possible. Great great, great grandfather. Being paid for by the great, great grandson, who whose great great grandfather may not have even been here at the time. Is there any example in history of this being done before we welcome back to the program? Arthur Herman, one of my favorite authors and the author of freedoms forge, which is a must read must read for everybody Arthur, I think one of the biggest mistakes, we made as a country was was not doing the forty acres and a mule. You know, we had the land back then we could have done it. We still have the land, but we could have done it probably was the right thing to do perhaps. And, you know, we just broke so many promises. However that one hundred fifty years ago. One hundred seventy years ago. Now, this idea of reparations, and the, the great great grandson paying for the crimes of a possible. Great, great grandfather had ever been done before. Well, yeah. It has. It's how the Marxist mind and also add the national socialist mind works, and that is, is that the world in which you live is based upon injustice upon you by great impersonal historical forces, which require the overthrow the entire system. Whether you're talking about the overthrow of capitalism, or in the case of the Nazis, the overthrow the World Jewish conspiracy. So that's the kind of line set that were fighting against Glenn is one that sees human beings. Not as free individuals. Not as being gifted with a sole with a with, with the independent will to make our future, a make identity as we see fit, or as we desire, but instead as pawns. Of these vast historical forces white supremacy, patriarchy, homophobia, Islamaphobia. You name it. And in those circumstances, it becomes then irrelevant. Whether in fact, for example, African Americans living in this country have a longer lifespan Africans living in, in, in their own content that the stories of people like an Oprah Winfrey stories of people like Clarence Thomas are meaningless because things are posed in terms of these huge ultimately meaningless abstractions, you know, the, the issue you just put your finger on reparations and the issue just mentioned immigration are, in fact, intimately connected, because they are both based upon Stoorikhel lie, which is, is that America is ultimately an evil place built by white supremacists. Built by Christian fundamentalists believers in the enslavement of the rest of the world patriots all those kinds of cliches. And therefore, why would you defend a country? Right. Why would you want to protect the borders country, which was born in San? Why would you want to not repay those that have suffered as a result of that of, of that original sin in the sense of, you know, those who may or may not be descendants of space that is going to be really hard issued sort out? You understand that, right? That's going to be a Super Bowl question. And then I look at my own experience, right? You mentioned great grandfather my great grandfather fought in the union army. He was wounded at the battle of stones river fighting against slavery fighting against the confederacy. In terms of who's going to be responsible for reparations, and who is who alternately needs to be called into account for, for what happened what, what was part of it in it indissoluble part of the thirteen colonies, that became an independent nation. And that was an issue that every great statesman up until eighteen six sixty wrestled with and tried to find a solution to and haunted, American politics, all those years since and ultimately required. The shedding of blood of more than six hundred thousand Americans before for it was finally sorted out. Look, you and I know we bundled the reconstruction period after the civil war there were the answers were there. And you just mentioned one of them before. Acres meal, the ways in which to go forward. Those options were there, if we really were a irredeemably, evil society, those options, we wouldn't have chosen you know, that, that we did, it would have been inevitable would have been locked in. But we didn't mistakes were were made by in those two decades that followed the civil war, but the reasons why those mistakes were made and there are there's no way you can look at the storm records sense and not see the history of the United States, as one that has promoted all of the most important human values and the most important foundations of human freedom, any society any society in the world. And that includes the civil rights movement, which is, you know, goes back much further than Martin Luther King, king culmination of. Of work of a of a title move consciousness in this country that had been set in motion before, before he arrived on the scene that he was able to that he was able to, to bring to bring to fruition, the of America of race in America is one that could be written in a very different way from the way in which the organizers of this reparations campaign have written it, and it would be much true or to these stork reality than their distortions, caricatures. All right. Arthur, I've only got a couple more minutes with you. And I, I gotta ask you this, I, I'm concerned, very concerned, and so is everyone in my industry about the silencing voices and how we how fast we can be deployed formed, and entirely erased. And that leads me to look at things, you know, like like, Huckleberry Finn and Mark Twain being remote. Moved from shelves of libraries and not not taught anymore. If. If we would enter this distortion world, that China is already in, or if we were hit by an EMP, God forbid, we had some, some sort of war with Russia, and we're trying to knock each other out, electrically all this knowledge could be lost. What if you had to save things and beyond the bible, and, and the founding documents what, what books, would you say every library should have every person should read every every school kids should read? We gotta have these books if we're going to tell the true story of America, and if we would ever want to reset it and put it right? That is really great question and have to have another hour, gland, or destroyed through what I was thinking about this. And, and it's it's an exercise conducted myself several times. But since we only have a few minutes here. What if we just limit ourselves to, to basically five books written by American presidents, as a way in which to do this, which I think many ways encapsulates so much of the American experience, that, that they really ought to be part of an understanding where we are in how we've gotten to where we are that I think that everybody should should really read it should be an every library. The first one, the first one that came to my mind was the speeches and addresses of ABRAHAM LINCOLN, you know. Right. You and I share a fascination for those, but for, for more than just the once seeded with civil war for man, who had a really deep understanding of American history of people understood. Banding of, of western history, including, including our, our Judeo Christian roots. It's an amazing amazing piece of today's Inc. Piece of work, Dan, other one that I would do is, and this is gonna shock. You surprise. You is the speeches of Franklin Roosevelt. You know, everybody discovered with a staunch -ment, right? Is his, his, his prayer before d day this last anniversary. But in fact, all his speeches whatever you say about, you know, Franklin Roosevelt, he made some huge mistakes, and in policy during the do deal, he certainly had some, some false assumptions about how the world work and his ability to, to create a postwar world in conjunction, the Soviet Union. But you know what for as presidents go? He his speeches reflected understanding of who we are of aspirations need to be that in ways that made them household. You know EV. Everybody everybody grass them what? So I would definitely put that on this. I also read then Dwight Eisenhower's crusade, in Europe, which is really understanding how that man was able to put together an hold together a multinational effort to, to, to free Nazi Germany, and why we did it to mazing book. I would also include Ronald Reagan's diaries, because those show at mind at work in the White House understanding, how it is that we are going to be able to deal with and, and ultimately emerged victorious against Soviet communism. Which everybody else assumed we would have to be lucky if we could find a way to engage in peaceful coexistence. It exposes aside, Ronald Reagan that not only enhances our understanding of his importance as an American president. But also, we, we see the way in which America in the in the Cold War era, this mind, coming to grips with what's taking. Place and understanding where it's fits in terms of where America needs to be the last one. I'll recommend Glenn John F Kennedy's profiles and courage. I think it's a wonderful book and, you know, there's a lot of standalone about who really wrote that book and so on and about his father's care being so surprise. But the biographies, first of all, the Baga fees of the man in the US, Senate who grappled with the issue of slavery. It's very well laid out in that book. He has a wonderful chapter on Robert Taft, the Republican Senator from Ohio, that we talked about before which is considering it as written for person, pretty opposite political. Party is amazing is a discussion. There about about George Norris who took a strong stand against the wheel Sonian kind of view of the world. America's involvement in World War One, it's a lot of I it's very readable. I read it, I as a as a school kid, but it's one, which I think's it's value grows. As as decades pass is a way to understand who we are in all of the really amazing things that we have accomplished, as society as a nation, and of the people who have made it possible for us to, to be to be that be that beacon in the world that we still are Glenn. It's still. It's still there. However, much try to try to try to extinguish the flame. Arthur, I love talking to you. I, I mean I used to just come in, and we should just do a whole show together because I still have about two hours left of stuff. I wanna ask you, thank you so much for your time. And we'll have you back again, Arthur Herman, you can follow him on Twitter, at Arthur, l Herman his book. That is a great entry for him is freedoms forge, which talks about how we won World War Two, it is an amazing. Being story annual all the way through it think.

"Ritchie wrote a book ghost of the civil war. Let's talk about that a little bit. I know a lot of people in the paranormal community start their paranormal stories by saying I was at Gettysburg, and I had this experience. And it made me curious that is not uncommon at all Gettysburg is a hot spot of paranormal activity as are many of these civil war locations. So tell me about your book where did your stories come from? Is there a certain geography or did you just seek out the most haunted places related to the civil war and talk about them. Why definitely cover every area of the civil war as far as geography goes. But I think the interest came. Living here in Memphis and being really close to Shiloh Vicksburg and surrounded by a lot of little smaller places like fort pillow and a smaller force and little skirmish areas. And I had so much of that around me that I I started going there and doing a lot and like, you just mentioned ghost hunters already sort of made these places really popular just because you know, the public parks game that you can go there during the day carry an audio recording the camera you can walk around and Leo listen for anything by going off this one of the most common experiences of these battlefields. So you have so many different people going there for their first investigations anyway. So I thought, you know, this is a great opportunity to sort of take something I have handy here and an interest because it's also involved with history and folklore and turn it into a book. And it was a. In writing. Were you able to visit all the sites? I mean, that's that's quite an undertaking. All the sites. No what I figured out pretty quick. And this this writing these books was that getting to know a lot of the local ghost hunting groups in different areas is really was an asset. And I tried to go to as many places. I can I I went to I think. Forty something different battlefields. A couple hundred different major and minor forts and skirmish areas cemeteries, you name it and any place that I couldn't go to our just reach out to the local ghost hunting groups and say, hey, you know, I'm I'm learning about this area. What was your experience is there can you back up any of these claims of activity in that sort of thing? And this is one of the things I've found about the ghost hunting culture is that we figure out somebody else's really interested in it. We share info and trade goes places and stories, and that's been one of the coolest things about writing about this stuff. What's unique about the civil war? Why is it that so many paranormal hot spots are connected to it? Why is it that so many civil war locations have so much paranormal activity is something unique here. What's the story? I think it's a combination of. I mean, first of all we're talking about between six hundred and twenty thousand and most current estimates actually even run up as high as eight hundred fifty thousand people died during this one war and just to put this in perspective the next highest casualties for war with four hundred five thousand. I mean, so wars head and shoulders even above that by over two hundred thousand dead, and we're talking about dead in your efforts. I just wanna I just to clarify. We're talking about American casualties American because hurricane did World War. I includes also those wounded and things like that we had over six hundred and twenty thousand people killed in the civil war. We're talking soldiers. Not even we're not even including the civilian casualties and things that were secondary to the war such as starvation lack of medicine all of these types of things, you know, over six hundred twenty thousand soldiers died during the civil war. This is a crazy number. I mean, you look at like the Vietnam war. We lost fifty eight thousand in change Chirps. When you get into the individual battles of civil war Gettysburg. We lost fifty one thousand casualties. We had as many casualties in Gettysburg is almost the entire Vietnam war in three days. Yeah. Three days in one spot in one battle in that war. Yeah. Take that amount of shear dead. But also the fact that this was a, you know, were north despite the South Americans are fighting Americans families were divided the emotions were running. So high. And you know, like, I do when when you go stories a lot of times, they talk about emotions, and what they can do, you know, people lingering because these emotions. I think a combination of of emotions running hot and the sheer amount of death is why the civil war is such a ghost hunter. Yeah. A lot of people don't take into account that both sides of each of those battles were Americans. And that's why you know, those casualties are so outrageous. The other thing we have to point out is that in a in a battle against Bergen. This was true. With almost all of this of war battles is that after the army's left the dead, essentially, laid strewn across those fields for days. That's true and often the side of the dead that lay there was who won the battle because both sides for sort of notorious about. Expeditiously taking care of their own dead and just sort of leaving the other side, laying baron's appeal and oftentimes it would take the locals to come in after on the aftermath of a battle to come in and sort of sweep up to did, and then sort of depending on their dispositions because, you know, everything from a local mob who maybe hated the other side who just into a mass grave or you had people who genuinely care about all the soldiers who were there, and they would try to make efforts to bury them properly. What you know, we have this whole range of of the way the dead was treated the score. And I know like my local battlefield Shiloh, which was the six highest in casualties in civil war. There's a lot of mass graves in the area for confederates and not so much for the union soldiers. Because of course, they won the day there. The. These casualties would stay on the field. In fact, many of the photographs that you see from the civil war and you see photographs of dead soldiers. I know a lot of the ones from Gettysburg pretty specifically because I studied that battle. But you know, that's Taga for it took him days to get to the field. And when he got there, those bodies were still there, and that's why they're so disfigured in many cases. But when you talk about that amount of tragedy in that amount of motion, and then about a blood soaked into the ground. I'm assuming that that is the perfect storm if you will for paranormal activity. Absolutely. We're talking also if you are the type of person that buys into the environmental factors, a lot of the state parks too. I mean when you get into the makeup of the bed rock and whatnot. Environmental, you know, usually, you notice that a lot of these battlefields have some sort of major waterway running through them. Shiloh the Tennessee river runs right through the middle. We had the battle stones river just outside. Nashville gemstones river that's running right through there. And you know, you can into sort of environmental factors to you've got that going on. Yeah. It it does seem that. You know, the big battlefields are sort of the perfect storm for it goes to hang around. As you were writing about these stories in these places, which ones kind of made the top of the list. Man. I, you know, I love the ones that just sorta persist like, you know, if I hear a story, and your it's the same from the late eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds, but it's sort of faded away into that secondary realm of folklore. You know, I like it. But I'm not as interested in it. But you take something like green is in chicken Maga. So for a lot of people they a lot of people know about Gettysburg cousins, fifty one thousand casualties and the three days, and and honestly, it was the biggest turning point of the war pretty much selling it for the north. But the second highest casualties in the war was a chicken Maga in Georgia. And literally since the days after that battle to the present day stories of an entity called green is has been spoken about chicken Maga. And I mean, you can get on and do a quick Google. Search of green is chicken Maga pull up stories. Current is like last week about green is people who still run into this the spirit this I you know, what I'm not even sure we call it a spirit at this point. Because I know a lot of crypto people have started jumping on the green is claiming it's more of this sort of revenue otherworldly being thing that the speeding up to dead on the battlefield. But that those kinds of stories that sorta persist. Over the over the century, plus since the civil war. Those are the ones that really really get to me. When you talk to other people who've had experiences on civil war sites. Do they share those experiences their common thread from what people are seeing? What's the most common type of apparition or experience that folks experience? Well, I definitely think on the battlefields. The most common type of activities people hear the sounds of battle. I think probably ninety nine out of one hundred people who have something happen on the battlefield. They hear the sounds of cannons people, you know, the cries of battle sometimes screams of pain that sort of thing. It's usually audibles audible stuff and. But when you get into, and this is where I really had a lot of fun with the book when you get off the battlefields, and you start getting into some of the historic homes that are associated with civil war. That's when you really start getting into these interesting stories about apparitions, you hung around since the eighteen sixties and have been seen for generations and ex home and really when you start getting and also pretty interesting, how many of these places have turned into sort of be a Bs some things. So I totally and I think this is another reason why Gettysburg has become popular because you can stay, you know, at the cash town in and you can stay at places like Tillie Pierce house in and stuff like that. I think if you can get into some of these homes that are associated with civil war. That's your best shot of seeing an apparition and heavy something visual happen. Most of the experiences are auditory if they're sounds do. We have a good record or a good compilation of EDP or other type of audio recordings that that come from. Those sounds. I think there's a lot of people ghost hunters who regularly go to these sites that have done a pretty good job of getting. Sounds like cannon fire in the distance and things like that. I actually have that happen while I was writing the book my partner, and I we went to fort pillow here in Tennessee. And we were up just getting some stock photos for the book, and we heard what sounded like cannons going off. And I said was there is there a reenactment happening right now? He said, I don't think so. And then we went back down to the little park ranger office where they have a little mini museum. I brought it up with with that fellow. And he was like, no there's no reenactments nothing going on. And he kind of gave us a sideways. Look, you know, and you know, the sideways, look and. Yeah. So I mean, I think that's the most common thing. And I would be shocked if there weren't a lot of recordings of that particular type of activity for sure. When we also look at these buildings that have are located on or near civil war battlefields. Most structures of any substance were used as hospitals during and after those battles, and those places to have a lot of reports of paranormal activity, and clearly there was a lot of suffering and tragedy in those buildings. Any those stories make your book? Oh, tons of them. And I mean, and this is really one of the overlooked aspects of civil works. Everyone really wants to look at the battlefields. But the shoddy medical care that was happening during the civil war accounted for a third two thirds of the deaths. It wasn't most of them. Do not die media me on the battlefield. They either languish in died in these hospitals. And then you also have the prisons were a lot of people died, and those are really both of those are hot spots for a lot of activity. I went to a pretty famous place in Mississippi close to us called the decent house. And that's prime example. They actually wrote a a made a movie just recently called the Free State of Jones. That sort of embossed house because Amos decent was a was a big local rich man who had you know, land and win the civil war came into Mississippi. They took his house and turn it into a field hospital. And there's these diary entries. You can go and read from Amos Diesen where he talks about the stacks of just amputated limbs that were thrown out the window. Yeah. Sorry to cut you off which we didn't realize how close we were to break. But those piles would just be stacks and heaps. Okay. We're going to continue that discussion we come back. It's beyond reality.
