There are some topics that are easy to introduce to our PreserveCast listeners. Today’s episode is not one of those – but it is a topic we feel compelled to cover and explore.

As a child growing up in Western New York, with Mohawk cousins, the history and world of native American culture always fascinated me.

Peter Jemison, is a rena…

What started initially as a student project has live on for decades and is today an open…
 
Do you ever wonder how authors and historians can keep writing new books about the same 'ole history? Shouldn’t it never change because it’s all in the past? The truth is anything but. No one can explain that better than our guest, Dennis Frye – having been involved in everything from giving tours to leading nationally important preservation and ba…

It has been historically all too easy for the places associated with underrepresented communities to fall through the cracks of the historic record. To a degree, that has been the case with the overly-simplified history presented of the Women’s Suffrage Movement. But with the recent spotlight on the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment, new rese…
 
Gettysburg is a special place and has been since the ground was made hallowed by soldiers nearly 160 years ago.

Few names have become as synonymous with grit, determination, and liberty as Harriet Tubman.

She is the author of three books that explore the intersections of power and ar…
 
The story of where we live is uniquely personal. Many historic homes have been preserved and opened to the public – places that tell a story about the way we once lived. However, American public housing – places built and maintained by governments – has been long been overlooked, forgotten, and worse yet, maligned. Today’s guest, Dr. Lisa Lee, is w…

For Civil War readers and historians, Maryland has always been confounding.

Few names are as synonymous with Civil War battlefields as “The Bloody Cornfield.” It conjures up visions of harrowing bloodshed and the tragedy of fratricidal combat.

Walt Whitman once wrote that, “Future years will never know the seething hell and the black infernal background of countless minor scenes and interiors . . . of the Secession war; and it is best they should not—the real war will never get in the books.” Although the painful, real stories of the Civil War and its grisly impacts may not have been acc…
