Aull About History 11 – Porte Crayon and Stonewall


Welcome to part the eleventh episode of Aull About History, the local history podcast from The Dominion Post, in partnership with the Aull Center, a branch of Morgantown Public Library.

Follow along as we explore the rich history of Morgantown and north-central West Virginia.

In this episode, historians Nathan Wuertenberg and Mike McClung take turns looking at two of West Virginia’s most famous sons and their roles in the American Civil War. Both spent formative years in our region, and both earned themselves some very interesting nicknames.
