In this episode of Songs From The Howling Sea, we hear the story of the Resurrection Men.
By the 1800's the medical world was in crisis. A reduction in executions meant a reduction in cadavers on which to expand their knowledge. But when there is a need there is always someone willing to meet it. Enter the Resurrection Men.
