There were two lines in a row for "Other Man." I think they could be the same person.

"Member of Congress" is three distinct individuals - two northerners and one southerner. I gave them different voices and threw in a very hokey Southern accent. Feel free to change things, discard, ask for another reader for part of them, etc. ;)
Hi Tricia,

053, 081 and 090 are all okay. :thumbs:

Hugh
Thank you Tricia and Hugh!

Thank you a bunch, Arielle! As for editing, I'll let you know if I need to take you up on that! Hugh was going to edit a couple more of them - if he still wants to. :-)

Hugh, do you remember which ones they were and do you still want to do them? No problem if you don't want to or don't have the time any more ~ I know it has been a while!

Hi Maria,

John Smith and Pocahontas, which is complete, and George Rogers Clark were the two that I was going to edit. If you want to edit or let Arielle edit George Rogers Clark, go for it. My schedule is tight right now. :)

Have at is, Arielle! :D

And if you really want to do any of the others, feel free ~ just might want to let me know first to make sure I'm not working on it myself. I know for sure I probably wouldn't get around to anything until next week at the least.

Hi Kristin,

Great! How many would you like?

I've put you down for a few with minimal lines:
032 - People (in the Pilgrims play) - 2 lines
055 - Third Man of the House - (George Washington play) - 1 line
074 - General Scott (Andrew Jackson play) - 1 line
092 - Mr. Haynes (Webster, Clay and Calhoun) - 1 line

Let me know if you want more or less roles. As long as they don't talk to each other/in the same act I'm fine with anything. :-) All the roles are pretty small, but I purposely pulled out 1 and 2 liners for you, not knowing quite how small you wanted!
Great:)

George Rogers Clark is finished and in the MW. I think I'll go ahead and do Abraham Lincoln and Grant/Lee as well since they're both ready to go.

Abraham Lincoln is up, but there's a missing line for the Soldier in Grant and Lee:

Soldier: Your answer will be given to General Buckner. Good bye, General Grant. (Salute).

I'll PM Charlotte.

Hi Arielle,

78 is okay.

91 is missing one small line. It's the second line for Calhoun.

Calhoun: Mr. Clay.
