1861 Battle of Bull Run News Report Script
GB: general Beauregard
R: Hi welcome back to early morning Pennsylvania! On today's episode we will be interviewing some soldiers from the recent events that happened on July 16 of this hilarious year of 1861. We even have a “treat” for you as we will be bringing you an actual general of the south! ( I know what a shame) We will be right back.
M: And were back! Now let's get some background information before we hear the details if any of you out there haven't heard. So the battle of Bull Run started out when the greatest army of the north marched with 37,000 volunteers onto our land of Virginia. Their plan was to cut off the railroads and then move onto Richmond but they soon were counteracted by 23,000 Confederate troops that marched north by General Beauregard. And now for our “special guest” so you can hear more of the story …. General Beauregard!! (annoyed)
GB: Thank you! So basically my plan was to make a long confederate line of troops on one side of the creek and make a blockade to keep the Union from getting to us. The Union being the cocky people they are.. ran right into us us not even realizing how strong we were. At the middle of the southern string was also another Southern General Thomas Jackson (my man ;) ) who got his men to stand strong. I mean that's actually where he got his nickname and I'm kind of jealous because its really cool and I want one just..-
M: General Beauregard can you please hurry it up
GB: Fine! ! But basically what happened I ordered a counteract being the smart General I am and the union crumpled like a delicious cookie right in front of our eyes and their big ego was popped. HOORAY FOR THE CONFEDERACY- I'm done now.
M: Thank you General (eye roll). 5,000 casualties so far counted and I wished we could have heard more from a better perspective but that's all we have time for today folks! Thanks for tuning in for the Battle of Bull Run with early morning Pennsylvania!
