This old Patreon episode is brought to you for free and without commercial interruption by our wonderful Patrons. They want you to learn so badly, that they said to me "hey, Matt. Why don't you release old Patreon episodes for free so all of your listeners can be as smart as we are?" To which I say, "Well, dear Patron, you aren't smart from our shows. You were smart to begin with, as evidenced by your Patronage." But I digress. Please consider becoming a Patron so a) we can stop asking for your support, b) so we can keep doing these shows and c) so we can expand to all forms of media, as per our plan.

I really enjoyed this interview with Colonels McCausland and Vossler about their new book "Battle Tested!" In this interview we focused on chapters 2 and 12 about Brigadier General John Buford's and Abraham Lincoln's (respectively) leadership skills and qualities. You can get your copy of the book by clicking here . You'll be hearing a lot more from these gentlemen on Addressing Gettysburg.
