1775

Author: Kevin Phillips

Reader: Arthur Morey

Format: 21 CDs (Unabridged)

The iconoclastic historian punctures the myth that 1776 was the watershed year of the American Revolution. Instead, he argues, the great events of 1775, including the expulsion of royal governors and the forming of new provincial congresses, achieved a sweeping Patriot control of territory and local government that Britain was never able to overcome.

After Lincoln

Author: A.J. Langguth

Reader: Tom Perkins

Format: 11 CDs (Unabridged)

After the Civil War, the Reconstruction set back black Americans and isolated the South for a century. With Lincoln's assassination, his "team of rivals" was left adrift and new President Andrew Johnson was impeached, although not removed from office. Later, President Grant's efforts to reconcile Southerners with the Union and to quash the Ku Klux Klan were undercut by post-war greed and corruption.

The Age of Lincoln

Author: Orville Vernon Burton

Reader: Rich Mock

Format: 12 CDs (Unabridged)
