War Yankee

Greetings! 👋 I am Kyle M. Bondo – The War Yankee – Creator of the American Civil War podcast about Grant’s March South to Petersburg.

In 1864, the Union entered its fourth year of war against the Confederacy succession. President Abraham Lincoln has fired yet another General and promoted Ulysses S. Grant — Hero of Vicksburg — to General-in-Chief of the entire Union Army. Without delay, Grant forms a new aggressive strategy that will not only take the fight to the enemy but see him command the Army of the Potomac in the field.

Join me, US Navy veteran Kyle Bondo, as I follow the history of Grant’s Overland Campaign from Culpeper to Petersburg, Virginia, in my American Civil War podcast War Yankee. Learn what it took General Ulysses S. Grant and the soldiers of the Army of the Potomac to survive 40+ days of continuous warfare against the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia in 1864. War Yankee – Overland is a history podcast presented by Gagglepod, the little studio I co-founded with my best friend, Tim Brien.

Every episode is a work of passion that requires a lot of coffee. I research, read, visit, host, mix, edit, and produce every episode myself. I would greatly appreciate it if you could do two things for me:

1. Send me a quick note of encouragement to thewaryankee@gmail.com. This keeps me going when times get tough!

2. If you enjoy this podcast, please consider supporting the show by buying me a cup of coffee (or two)!

Thank you!
