Audible Editor Reviews

Abolitionist and early social activist Thomas Wentworth Higginson's Army Life in a Black Regiment tells the story of his own personal experiences during the Civil War, when he served a colonel of the United States' first ever regiment of freed African American slaves, known as the 1st South Carolina Volunteers.

Jim Roberts' authoritative performance of this historic work is characterized by steady pacing and diction. Higginson's rich memories will arrest the attention of anybody with a particular affinity for the period, although his observations and outlook, while quite progressive at the time, may prove startling and even seem bigoted to contemporary listeners.

What the Critics Say

"An account of life in a black civil war regiment, offers a fascinating view of a little-reported aspect of the fighting written by the regiment's commander, a sympathetic and compassionate white man. It nonetheless reveals the biases and misunderstandings of the times....This recording makes a key work accessible to audiobook listeners." (Booklist)
"Roberts' account is clear and he reproduces the dialect of the Southern troops without stereotyping." (Kliatt)
