Gerry's Monologue -
"This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...

...friends, has life got you down? Are you in debt that you don't know how to get out of? Is your marriage spiraling down toward divorce? A thing so bad you could even consider suicide? Well before you do anything rash. "Dig This," in the words of The Main Ingredient, 1971: it could be worse. You could also be in North Carolina, where we are going to find out about people for whom this was the case. In a book called "Moments of Despair: Suicide, Divorce and Debt in Civil War era North Carolina." It's written by our guest today, David Silkenat, on Civil War Talk Radio."
