Kids studying history will enjoy Great Speeches in History, an audiobook that brings the past alive through spirited reenactments of Western history's greatest orators. Performances from gifted actors like Norman Rodway, Samuel West, Elizabeth Bell, and Peter Markiner add drama and emotional intensity to speeches that move through history, from Socrates and William the Conqueror through to Patrick Henry and suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst. More than simply speeches, this collection teaches listeners about the social and political issues affecting people from Ancient Greece into the early 20th century.

this title gives the listener a wide range of great speeches given by key people throughout history. The entire selection is worth getting just for the lesser known speeches of Susan Anthony and Jefferson Davis...but I also found the ones by George Washington to be enlightening.
