"History Personified"

Sep 16, 2017

On this week's episode of "History Personified," I take a deep look at the intriguing relationship between American Founding Fathers John Adams and Thomas Jefferson with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Gordon S. Wood.

Adams and Jefferson came from very different backgrounds. Adams was from Massachusetts, and his family was blue collar and working class. Jefferson, meanwhile, was a Southerner whose family was much more aristocratic. They both became involved in the burgeoning American government, and worked together on the Declaration of Independence. A deepening political divide led to a rift that took years to heal, but what resulted was some of the most intriguing personal correspondence in American history.

On this week's episode, we interview author/biographer Mike Guardia about the life and career of Lt. Gen. Hal Moore. Gen. Moore is best known as the lieutenant colonel in command of the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, at the Battle of Ia Drang in 1965, during the Vietnam War. He would later be awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, which is the U.S. military's second highest decoration for valor. In addition, Gen. Moore would be portrayed by Mel Gibson in the celebrated war film, "We Were Soldiers." 

Gen. Moore passed away in February of 2017 at age 94, but, before that, he collaborated on the recently released book co-written with Guardia, entitled Hal Moore on Leadership: Winning When Outgunned and Outmanned. On this episode, which completes a two-part series on the Vietnam War's Battle of Ia Drang, Guardia discusses Gen. Moore's life and times.

Journalist Joe Galloway was a journalist who covered the Vietnam War early on, and specifically the Battle of Ia Drang. But he didn't just write about it...he was right there in the thick of the action. In fact, in 1998, he was awarded a Bronze Star for helping to rescue a badly wounded soldier while under enemy fire. To say that Galloway has a unique perspective on the Vietnam War would be an understatement.

In the first of this two-part series on the Battle of Ia Drang, I speak with Mr. Galloway about his experiences in Vietnam, as well as his involvement with the 1998 blockbuster, "We Were Soldiers," in which he was portrayed by Barry Pepper. We chat about this thoughts on the accuracy of the movie, as well as his involvement with Ken Burns' upcoming documentary series on the Vietnam War.
