Episode 39 - Alaska
Added: Apr 07 2015
One of the most intensely interesting and thrilling chapters in the annals of American history is that of Alaska, the land of the midnight sun, and to those men who gave to the United States that new land, we pay tribute in this episode. Often described as Seward's Folly, the story opens in the year 1867. In a rather dimly lit room in Sitka, a certain transaction is being brought to a close. In the room are several Russians, and several Americans, with the scratching of a pen being the only sound.
