This is my chapter 25~ https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/americanleaders_25_gordy.mp3

Section 25 on U.S. Grant:

Please revise file name to read americanleaders_25_gordy_128kb

In the opening title, you said 1822-1825 should be 1822-1885
At 1:03 and 1:08, you can say Ohio instead of "O." I realize that is what the text says, but since this is for children, saying the full name of the state would definitely be a help.
At 10:59 you said "...he said to himself... " should be "he said of himself"
At 12:31 I heard "..tour around the word.." should be "tour around the world"

A slight pause here and there, especially between paragraphs, would greatly help the pacing.

I've made some changes here and there, hope it goes better this time. The length is 13:18 min.

Thank you Hannah - excellent job on the corrections.
There is still one error at :22 where you give the dates. His date of death should be 1885, not 1825 (which makes him 3 years of age!) :lol:
