GETTYSBURG MINI-SERIES THIS WEEKEND

"This is a high quality, digitally recorded production features top-notch actors and music... a great selection for Civil War buffs... and students." - Elaine Hanson - BOOKLIST.
" The sound effects are good, the narration clear and crisp, the various voices even better ...an endless spectacle of blood and dust and insects and carnage. That's what the war itself was like, of course. Here are the fatigue, the despair, the pain, the screams, the deafening cannon plowing through human ranks, death, and dismemberment. Sometimes the politicians are heard. More often the generals and officers and foot soldiers. One would swear that a newspaper reporter with cassette recorder in hand was dashing around the battlefield in the thick of it" - AudioFile
