Poems of American History, Volume 4, The Civil War by Various ( - ).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/poems-of-american-history-volume-4-the-civil-war-by-various/

This volume is a fascinating reflection on the Civil War years from a perspective in 1908, when many Civil War veterans were still alive, when the wounds to North and South were still fresh, and when no event more cataclysmic had struck the Republic than a Civil War that began less than 100 years after the Revolution for Independence. Poets in this volume include: John Greenleaf Whittier, William Cullen Bryant, Herman Melville, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Bret Harte, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Walt Whitman, and Julia Ward Howe. ( 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.

      This project has a dedicated prooflistener that will listen to all files: edhumpal. Level of prooflistening: 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!

Thanks, Ann.

Well, we're open for business again. I took section 1 and I must admit that it was the concentration of John Greenleaf Whittier poems. If you see favorite poets of yours, jump on 'em.

These are big chapters, but the hard core history buffs we've attracted, willing to go the long march on the long form poems, have proved up to the task in three previous volumes. Newcomers welcome!

Anyone out there having a Ken Burns Banjo Moment? Step right up!

Do you want the file name to be what the template generator spit out?

Kristin, I'm afraid realisticspeakers beat you to it by about 3 hours. I hope you will consider another section, I'd be glad to have you. And thank you for claiming, reals.

Ha! That's what I get for only skimming the previous posts!

Chapter 3 would work fine for me!
