To mark the sesquicentennial of the start of the Civil War, NPR and HighBridge Audio have assembled this collection of stories about the conflict, originally broadcast over several years. The pieces touch on the people (not just the generals but also frontline soldiers), the places, and the issues. Highlights include Sam Waterston reciting the Gettysburg Address and author Shelby Foote talking about his books on the war and about growing up in the South with a grandfather who fought for the Confederacy at Gettysburg. The episodes are uniformly engaging and create a “you-are-there” atmosphere. Occasional music—including a piece on the song “Dixie”— adds to mood. The episodes aren't long, making them ideal for listening while running errands. R.C.G.
