Our History Project, a non-profit dedicated to the preservation and education of U.S. history, documented and broadcast live today the stories of more than a dozen U.S. veteran authors and historians at the Military Writers Society of America conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Historian Louis Intres spoke about the sinking of the Sultana in 1865. Tom McGraham spoke about his experience in the battle of Iwo Jima. Mike Angley, author of the fictional Child Finder Trilogy, spoke about the Khobar Towers bombing, and New Dawn author Richard Lowry and former Marine, Craig Rizzo, provided their perspective on the battle of Fallujah.

Our History Project is based in McDonough, Georgia, and spans pre-Revolution to current historical events. Click here to listen live, listen to their weekly radio show, or to download the day’s interviews.
