Very Poor Recording Quality
Would you be willing to try another one of Deaver Brown’s performances?
Not likely, the sound quality of the recording did not sound professional at all.
Did Declaration of Independence inspire you to do anything?
Obviously I find no fault with the Declaration. It's one of the finest documents ever written.

sorry I bought the book
Author misses the point of STATE sovereignty and misrepresents the institution of slavery, it's significance in Lincoln's War and ignores the similarity between Lincoln and King George. Another reading of the Declaration of Independence is much better use or a listener's time.
