MARCHING HOME Union Veterans and Their Unending Civil War

by | Read by John McDonough

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

John McDonough’s resonant voice narrates this account of the odysseys of Union veterans of the American Civil War. While listening to this account, one is struck by the fact that so little has changed in a century-and-a-half. Civilians who are untouched by the war take little to no notice of the veterans. The veterans themselves are often broken both physically and emotionally but struggle to secure appreciation for their sacrifices and support for their needy comrades. The account ends with the passing of the last verified veteran of the Civil War, Albert Woolson, of Minnesota, in 1956. McDonough’s pacing, inflection, and enunciation are always well done, and this production is no exception. His reading of this superbly written history will quickly capture the listener’s attention and keep it to the end. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
