UnCommon History
UnCommon History is about the fascinating and unusual stories and little-known facts from three centuries of American history. Produced monthly and three to five minutes in length, these audio podcasts uncover the truth about the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, the Great Society and the Great Depression. Whether it was invention or intervention, innovation or despair, UnCommon History speaks of women and immigrant people. It will unmask the characters of our past, introduce the culture of American Indians and tell true stories you never learned in school. Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission is a unit of government funded by the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the New Jersey Historical Commission/Department of State.
