Episode Description:

General Sherman said, “War is hell”. While the battlefield prompted the General’s comment, that same agony and sacrifice was felt on the home front as well. Since regimental company’s were, on the most part, recruited from the same community such horrific battles as Antietam or Gettysburg would leave an entire community in mourning. How did communities cope with such losses? With not knowing how their son or husband was, the waiting, the awful waiting and not knowing was unbearable. So join us as Along the Blackstone’s Episode #15 gives us insight into what was happening on the home front. Included in this episode is a powerful Historical Music Video entitled, “The Vacant Chair” one of the most popular and poignant songs of the Civil War.
