My Mission

I firmly believe that our first duty as Americans and people of the world is to remember the sacrifices of others. Sports broadcasting gave me my voice. Now, I’m using that voice and all of the skills that I have learned to honor the heroes of history. By eternalizing the stories of these individuals, I hope that I can remind everyone why we should never take anything in this life for granted. As time goes on, this website will serve as a resource for all generations to understand why we must always honor the ultimate symbols of our freedom.

Battle of Antietam

The Battle of Antietam, also known as the Battle of Sharpsburg, changed the course of the American Civil War. Fought on September 17, 1862, General George B. McClellan’s Army of the Potomac launched a series of assaults against General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia along Antietam Creek near the Maryland village of Sharpsburg. The soldiers in both armies believed that the destiny of their respective nations rested on the outcome of this battle and fought as if there would be no tomorrow. For many men, there was no tomorrow. The two sides combined suffered an estimated 23,000 casualties, making this horrifying fight the bloodiest single day in American history. Most on both sides e

Battle of Borodino

On Monday, September 7, 1812, Napoleon Bonaparte’s Grand Armée faced the principal Russian army under Field Marshal Prince Mikhail Kutuzov at Borodino, a small village some 65 miles to the west of Moscow. Since invading Russia in late June with approximately 615,000 men, the largest invasion force in the history of mankind to that time, the Emperor of the French had been trying to draw the Russians into a major battle. He got his opportunity at the Battle of Borodino. The clash raged for ten hours and featured some of the fiercest fighting in military history. Kutuzov’s army suffered enormous casualties, but the Russian commander successfully withdrew that night, managing to keep the remaind

September 11, 2001: We Will Never Forget

On September 11, 2001, all of our lives changed forever. On that day, we experienced pain that still haunts us 17 years later. While the sorrow will never go away, our unbreakable American spirit shines on. The 9/11 terrorist attacks were designed to leave us in ruin. They took so much from us, but they also brought out the best in us. That day, every American had a common purpose to help one another. From the first responders navigating the perils at Ground Zero to the average citizen who looked to assist in any way that they could, we stared the dangers down and reminded the world what it means to be an American. Being an American is not always easy. This privilege comes with a responsibil

The Capture of Atlanta

On September 3, 1864, a telegram from General William Tecumseh Sherman arrived in Washington: “Atlanta is ours, and fairly won.” For the Northern people and President Abraham Lincoln, this news was astounding. Northern Morale had sunk to its lowest point during the summer of 1864 and Lincoln had good reason to doubt his re-election chances. Because of Sherman’s capture of Atlanta and other Union victories, Lincoln went on to win a second term in November. The war was far from over, but with Lincoln in the White House, Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant directing all Federal armies, and unrelenting commanders in the field like Sherman, the Union would continue to push towards victory. In Mar
