- A Father’s Search for His Son in the Aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg
- By: Chuck Raasch
- Narrated by: Michael Kramer
- Length: 13 hrs and 22 mins
On the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863, Union artillery lieutenant Bayard Wilkeson fell while bravely spurring his men to action. His father, Sam, a New York Times correspondent, was already on his way to Gettysburg when he learned of his son's wounding but had to wait until the guns went silent before seeking out his son, who had died at the town's poorhouse. Sitting next to his dead boy, Sam Wilkeson then wrote one of the greatest battlefield dispatches in American history.
