Bonus: Gettysburg

First aired June 22, 2023: 

Two sisters combined their love of historically accurate dioramas, the Civil War, and clay-making to pen an ode to the US in one of the most historically significant cities in the United States. They even purchased a building with deep roots in the aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg to bring the stories of the dead to life. But, the clay characters aren't human - they are a different species entirely telling the accurate tale of the bloodiest battle of the civil war.
