In 1862 William, Christopher, and Phillip Raber enlisted in Company K of the 9th Regiment, Virginia (United States) Infantry. As loyal union men, they joined nearly one thousand other volunteers for three years' service to put down the rebellion of the Confederacy. One year later, Phillip, was marched before a firing squad and executed. By war’s end Christopher was an outlaw , and their mother had been arrested and placed in the county jail. Join us as we explore the complex nature of loyalty and disloyalty during the Civil War era.

They are warm, fuzzy beings that come in many different shapes and sizes, yet they all sense our emotions and thrive in our company. But they are also descended from wolves, fierce and elusive social predators. How did dogs become so integrated into human society? And how can we reconstruct any species’ prehistory? In the first installment of our new Doggy History series, we examine several theories about how dogs left the wolf pack and became part of ours instead, and find out that humans have been blaming it on the dog pretty much forever.

How did an unassuming office assistant from New York fool her way to the winners' circle of the 1980 Boston Marathon? The first major cheating scandal in long-distance running had nothing to do with drugs or endorsement deals, but with the shameless moxie of a woman whose journey into cheating infamy was probably more accidental than intentional.
