Narrator Mark Sanderlin brings charming sincerity to his portrayal of young historical reenactor Amos Abernathy. Amos wonders why history focuses on straight, cisgender men (and occasionally women). When he's offered the opportunity to create a new exhibit at the Living History Park, where he volunteers with his best friend, Chloe, and a new crush, Ben, he discovers that the past is more complicated than he ever realized. Sanderlin's Amos sounds delightfully flustered around Ben and realistically frustrated at the obstacles he faces bringing LGBTQIA+ history to a community that is reluctant to engage with it. Sanderlin effectively navigates the audio's switches between the past, the present, and Amos's letters to the possibly transgender Union soldier Albert D.J. Cashier, a real-life historical figure.
