Episode 2: There Will Soon Be Rain

The Clement Podcast

Apr 15 2022 • 31 mins


Join Zach and Jasmin as they discuss one of the most debated historical topics; the American Civil War. Tennessee was the last state to secede from the Union and the first to fall, prompting strong opinions from its already divided residents. Referencing first-hand accounts from the area, this episode focuses on what the war was like in Dickson County.


"I think there will soon be rain after which I hope our Fall, which consists any thing but "melancholy days" is our beautiful climate, will come. The poet must indeed have that sadness with in which makes the outer world look sad, who could say our Autumnal days were "saddest of the year" for through they at times create a sort of gladness in which there is deepest pretense and zest, yet this is that happiness with which some great minds have thought approached nearest to the joy Redeemed, here after." Eleanora Willauer Diary October 1, 1862
