Episode #11: The Great Locomotive Chase

The Army Historical Foundation talks with The Southern Museum in Kennesaw, Georgia about The Great Locomotive Chase of 1862 in which a group of Union Soldiers stole a train, named The General, to disrupt the Western & Atlantic Railroad and the Confederate supply chain. Listen to The Southern Museum’s Josh Trower as he describes what he refers to as “one of the first special forces missions” resulting in the very first Medals of Honor.
