Mister Ron's Basement #1575
This week we have a theme to all our stories, which will become apparent by the time we get to Friday's tale.
Back in Episode #633, we presented a 43 minute version of George W. Peck's 1870s lecture 'How Peck and Another Mule Crushed the Rebellion.'
Years later, Peck expanded and serialized the lecture in his newspaper, 'Peck's Sun.' In 1897, it was compiled into a book called 'How Private George W. Peck Put Down the Rebellion.'
Today, we are reading a fun part of that book, 'I Am Sent Forth in Women's Clothes.'
Time: approx nineteen minutes
