The Battle of Bull Run springs to life through the lives of several participants. An elegant Southern lady speaks of seeing her family off to battle. A slave weighs the possibilities of freedom. A photographer marvels at the phenomenon captured by his camera. In Fleischman's book each observation is a separate chapter. In the recording these are defined by the different readers. The actors in this extraordinary production perfectly characterize various individuals through dialect, vocal quality and mannerism. Each individual is readily recognizable as a particular story is taken up again in a new chapter. These marvelous readers become very real voices amid the din of the Civil War. S.B.S.
