The Battle of Gettysburg - the turning point of the American Civil War - would, in the words of one staff officer, stand “like Waterloo, conspicuous in the history of all ages.” In this stirring production, adapted from the New York Times’ award-winning online journal and Audible audiobook Disunion, we revisit the meaning and importance of the battle that forever changed US history. Timed to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the battle which took place over several days starting July 1st, 1863, Why Gettysburg Mattered concludes with an inspiring performance of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.

Historical Snapshot

This was a very short download and was a freebie from Audible for the 4th of July. The intro was interesting, but I wish it had bit a bit longer and given more detail. I did enjoy listening to The Gettysburg Address, as this was the first time that I remember ever listening to the entire speech.

Enjoyable preview for book of vignettes

I read some of these essays when they ran in the NY Times, and appreciated getting this preview before buying the whole book. My teenage history-loving son enjoyed this preview, and it made us decide to get the whole book soon.

Of course the whole significance of Gettysburg can't be covered in 14 minutes. But if you are looking for something episodic to listen to the car, or for short time before bed, as we are, this was a great length.

The narrator was good and engaging as well.
