Season 3, Episode 13. The morning hours of the First Battle of Bull Run concentrated on Matthews Hill, where the outflanked Confederates tried desperately to hold their ground, only to be driven back by the superior numbers of the Army of Northeastern Virginia. With Matthews Hill occupied by the Union by the afternoon, the battle looked won, but the Confederate forces were taking a new position on Henry Hill, where they would rally in the afternoon.

Chris Calton recounts the controversial history of the Civil War. This is the 13th episode in the third season of Historical Controversies. You may support this podcast financially at Mises.org/SupportHC.
