One of eight programs in the series, The United States at War, this audio program focuses on the political events and issues that built up to the Civil War. George C. Scott narrates a script which quotes proclamations, speeches and excerpts from corre-spondence. A cast of actors take the roles of the speakers--Lincoln, Seward, Harriet Beecher Stowe. Scott's low, gravelly voice is a good contrast to the clear voices of the historical figures. While the cast reads the lines clearly, members add little character to them beyond slight accents or inflection. The script is well-crafted and will interest listeners who find history appealing in this format. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 94]
