American History on NPR

Early American history has been getting some good airtime on National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition.”

Check out yesterday’s story on Henry Clay featuring David Heidler, the author of Henry Clay: The Essential American.

Today, “Morning Edition” did a story on that eighteenth-century ship found at the site of the World Trade Center. Loyal readers may remember we blogged about this story last month. Apparently the remains of the ship are in a laboratory in Maryland and they smell a bit like rotten eggs!
