Charlie Fennell dropped by the studio to talk about one of the lesser-talked-about brigades of the Army of the Potomac (in spite of their high casualty rate)- Biddle's Brigade.

The fighting was intense for this brigade. So why don't most people hear a lot about it? "Because they were placed in line next to the Iron Brigade, as Charlie jokes in this episode.
