In the summer of 1864, a year and a half after Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation declared slaves in the Confederate states to be free. It would not be until several months later, November 1, 1864, that enslaved people in Maryland were declared free.  How did it happen?  And what happened next?  Two scholars of emancipation join Sheilah to talk about it.

Then, Nathan speaks with John Dermot Woods about his book, "The Baltimore Atrocities."

Plus, WBAL Television sports director Gerry Sandusky joins Tom Hall to discuss sports and Sandusky's new memoir.
