The newest episode of The Frontier Partisans Podcast featuring the weird and wild tale of filibuster William Walker is up. You can access it here or on Spotify or on most other podcasting platforms.
Walker was a strange man, and it’s hard to understand what drove him to truly crazy schemes to carve off a personal empire in Mexico or Central America. SPOILER ALERT: It ended badly.
Walker’s brief conquest of Nicaragua was soon overshadowed by the tumult of the American Civil War, and it is scarcely remembered now in the United States — but Central America has not forgotten.
This is the 30th episode of The Frontier Partisans Podcast. Please consider supporting the work of the podcast and blog by becoming a patron.
