Charlotte at War On this Veteran's Day we look back at Charlotte's history with American wars. From the moment British General Cornwallis described our region as a "Hornets Nest" of resistance during the Revolution, Charlotteans have put down pitchforks, plows and their briefcases and taken up arms to defend American interests. We'll take a look at our veteran's commitments and sacrifices. Guests David Erdman - Attorney and amateur historian, Creator of Charlotte at War Presentation Dr. Dan Morrill - Professor of History, UNC Charlotte
