Sources: Episode Twenty-One

As always, the goal at Thugs and Miracles is to be as transparent as possible and to spark a discussion about history. This podcast would be remiss to that end if it did not include a list of all of the sources used to make every episode. If you think I have missed anything, or if you have a recommendation for a source I haven't used yet, please feel free to reach out and let me know!

Without further ado, my source list for Episode Twenty-One - A Family Divided
