Where does Witness to Gettysburg rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
The content is unique to the Gettysburg books and well organized. Having read a dozen plus works on the battle, this one offers new texture, tone, and imagery...not easy to do.
The voices are carefully crafted and weighted correctly to fit the witness.....very few stereotypic cliched voices here - refreshing given what others have done to works like The Killer Angels etc. clearly expands one's visions of Gettysburg.
What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?
Varied, intelligently studied with an awareness of the usual traps in affecting Southern, female, and the anxious voices of combat. He has many interpretations and uses them very well.

Accurrate first hand accounts from participants, both blue and grey, and local residents. Totally different perspective from other narrative descriptions of the battle and events that led up to those three fateful days in July of 1863. Even for a veteran Gettysburg battle follower as myself this was a master class above and beyond any previous experience. Born and raised in Gettysburg, and a lifelong tourist of the area, with countless trips to musuems and field displays, I still gained many new insights. History from the mouths of witnesses, first hand, from letters, diaries and news accounts of the day. Powerful stuff.
