This is the third episode in Eric Ludy’s winter Daily Thunder series that dives into the unstable season of American History known as the Antebellum period (1815-1861). In this particular episode Eric explores the unique parallel between the period right before the Civil War and the period we are all living in right now. Today we have the Woke crowd, but back in 1861, they had the Wide Awakes. And, ironically, both the Woke and the Wide Awakes had the foundational motivation of racial redress. But, the Woke crowd of 2022 would be benefited from a few lessons in approach, courtesy, and consideration from the 1861 Wide Awakes.
