Gerry's Monologue -
"This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...

...based on the books one finds on the shelves at your local chain bookstore. Two the most popular historical topics, especially with military buffs, are the Civil War and military aviation. And what would be a more sure fire hit than today's show topic, Military Aviation during the Civil War. The only problem, is there any way? Lee surrendered at Appomattox 38 1/2 years before the Wright Brothers for the Kitty Hawk. To find out what did happen in the air and I think, to be surprised by the answer, we will talk today with Tom D. Crouch, Senior Curator of the Division of Aeronautics at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum, on Civil War Talk Radio."
