Poems of American History, volume 3, The Period of Growth by Various ( - ).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/poems-of-american-history-the-period-of-growth-by-various/

This volume covers the age of expansion from the Revolution to the Civil War, including the creation of the Constitution, the Presidency of George Washington, the War of 1812, and the settling of the West, along with tales of Johnny Appleseed, the Alamo, the Gold Rush, the death of Jefferson, and The Wreck of the Hesperus. Authors include Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Francis Scott Key, John Greenleaf Whittier and Lord Byron. ( Ed Humpal)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/47476
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      Please note: After you have read the Disclaimer and Title, your text begins with the introductory paragraph before the poem. Then simply read the poem, and attribute the author at the end of the poem, which is how it appears in the text. Then, just as if you were beginning a new paragraph in a piece of prose, read the next introductory paragraph, the poem title, the poem, and the poet's name, continuing this way until your section is done.

I love this book. Everytime we get near the end of a volume, I think, "I'm going to wait a couple weeks, take some time off, get tanned and rested," but then I launch the next one within a day of cataloging. :lol:

Thanks, Ann. This is a pretty engaging volume and there are a lot of good poets. I can't really pick for myself yet; I usually wait until there are only a few sections remaining. :hmm:

I saw Dolly Madison had written one of the poems of this section, so I had to have it! :D
