From UNCLE TOM'S CABIN to the "Gettysburg Address," this concise and thought-provoking oral history of the Civil War and the abolition of slavery is told through the powerful words of those who were there. Each narrator delivers unique voices for the characters they portray. Moira Quirk accentuates Harriet Beecher Stowe's compassionate prose. Matthew Wolf finds the moral certitude in Ralph Waldo Emerson's essays. Scott Brick delves deeply into the biblical and Shakespearean overtones and rhythms of Abraham Lincoln's most elegant prose. Lastly, Michael Crouch delivers the winsome letters that a young Union soldier sent back home. Inspiring, heartrending, and prescient--this collection proves that spoken word can be mightier than the sword. B.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
