The Long View: The Long View: Board Game Backstory of Fort Sumter

Join me and Historian Justin Nordstrom as we explore the backstory of Fort Sumter, by Mark Herman. We examine the history behind the game and debate how well the setting informs the game design, and what connections can be found between the actual history surrounding this time period and the gameplay. We hope you enjoy this discussion of Fort Sumter - The Secession Crisis 1860 - 1861. Thanks to our sponsor for their continued support of the show.
