The Women of the American Revolution Volume 1 by Elizabeth F. Ellet (1818 - 1877).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-women-of-the-american-revolution-vol1-by-elizabeth-f-ellet/
Excerpt from Preface: Their patriotic sacrifices were made with an enthusiasm that showed the earnest spirit ready on every occasion to appear in generous acts. Some gave their own property, and went from house to house to solicit contributions for the army. Colors were embroidered by fair hands, and presented with the charge never to desert them; and arms and ammunition were provided by the same liberal zeal. They formed themselves into associations renouncing the use of teas, and other imported luxuries, and engaging to card, spin, and weave their own clothing. ( Celine Major)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/49411
    .
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard
    .
    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    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!

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of The Women of the American Revolution Volume 1. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "The Women of the American Revolution Volume 1, by Elizabeth F. Ellet. [Chapter]"

    .
    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Women of the American Revolution Volume 1 by Elizabeth F. Ellet. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    .
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      .
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Women of the American Revolution Volume 1, by Elizabeth F. Ellet. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
    .
  4. Example filename womenoftheamericanrevolutionvolume1_##_ellet_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. womenoftheamericanrevolutionvolume1_01_ellet_128kb.mp3)
