The American History Guys are three university professors who specialize on 18th, 19th, and 20th century American history. You’ll be most familiar with the 19th century guy, Ed Ayers of the University of Richmond. The others are University of Virginia instructors Peter Onuf (18th century) and Brian Balogh (20th century). I received an email from an intern at the show – Miriam – about a series of podcasts on the civil war. There are three in the series (The Road to the Civil War, Why They Fought, and The Civil War at 150: Questions Remain) and you can check them out here.
