In this week’s Dispatches host Brady Crytzer interviews JAR contributor, Marine Corps veteran, and retired history teacher Jeff Dacus about Stephen Moylan, an Irish immigrant who became one of George Washington’s most trusted and life-long friends.
As your host says, “Sit back, relax, and enjoy the interview. . . .”
New episodes of Dispatches are available for free every Sunday evening (Eastern United States Time) on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and the JAR Dispatches web site.
Thank you as always for listening!
I enjoyed Jeff Dacus’ podcast about Moylon. I think it is important to hear the stories of the relatively unknown people whose contributions to the Revolutionary War helped the patriots win. As a teacher, those stories are always so interesting to my students and bring history to life for them. It’s not always easy for them to relate to the Washingtons and other founders that they have heard of but they are interested in the average person who risks his or her life and fortune just like the leaders of the Revolution that we all know. I enjoyed learning about this young man. And thank you Jeff for bringing this story to us. I’m excited to share it with my students.
