Notable on NOBLE – Victims: A True Story of the Civil War

Check out what’s Notable on NOBLE, right now! Relive some Library History!!! It’s been 7 years since the library first converted a locally recorded cassette book to a digital talking book. That book was Victims: A True Story of the Civil War by Phillip Shaw Paludan. It’s the story of the Madison County Massacre. In 1863 Confederate officials rounded up and shot a number of civilians in this North Carolina mountain county. It is an encounter with man’s capacity to commit atrocity, with the power of war to shake a community, with the enduring ability of ordinary people to overcome the battering forces of history.

Take a listen to this Notable on NOBLE and then download the rest of the story, just like BARD, but without a password. We trust you’ll really enjoy this book!
