Let Them Fight: A Comedy History Podcast

Feb 25, 2021

Today we'll be talking about the first guy from the South to show up on this podcast that wasn't super into slavery, Newton Knight. This dude, while admittedly kind of a simpleton based on the way he sounds in his quotes, was anti-Confederacy and managed to lead a whole splinter group of other like-minded swamp folk. They didn't do a whole lot of significant damage, but man did the rebel leadership hate them, and that's good enough for me. Also dude had some comedy gold in his quotes. Enjoy!
