The First Cavalry Division came under surprise attack in Sadr City on April 4, 2004, now known as “Black Sunday.” On the homefront, over 7,000 miles away, their families awaited the news for forty-eight hellish hours-expecting the worst. ABC News’ chief correspondent Martha Raddatz shares remarkable tales of heroism, hope, and heartbreak.
