Every Friday, Kirby teaches at a home school co-op for 8th to 12th graders, and this year he's teaching a class on the Civil War. This podcast includes an excerpt from Friday's lecture - recorded in the KVI studio.
If you'd like to follow along with Kirby's lessons - the text book for this class is "This Great Struggle: America's Civil War by Steven E. Woodworth"
This week's lesson includes the history of the Battle Hymn of the Republic and Sherman's Campaign of the Carolinas
