Project Main Details

Documentary Narrator African American Male 
Civil War Documentary

We are seeking an informative and dynamic voiceover actor to narrate a Civil War documentary which tells the tale of the end of the Civil War in Appomattox, Virginia. This includes the final moments of battle up until the signing of the Surrender between Lee and Grant. The film also delves into the slave-slaveowner relations in Appomattox, which was an important element that we would like highlighted in the narrator's tone and approach to include every type of community historically and currently present within the surrounding area.

Script Details

custom demo required  
On March 27th, 1865, at City Point, Virginia, four men held a council of war aboard a vessel called the River Queen. They were all confident – the Union was about to win the Civil War at last. But then, when they did – what should they do with the former Confederates?

Grant paroled the Confederate soldiers. They would not be prisoners of war; they could go home. Each man had made his choice, hoping to end the war with civility and mercy for all. Grant signed his terms, and Lee his acceptance.

In the end, lives had not been sacrificed in vain. The Civil War introduced a very basic question to American life: what rights should be common to all people? Lincoln had issued the Emancipation Proclamation two years earlier, but it was with Appomattox that emancipation became more than a statement: it could now be the law of the land. That December, the 13th Amendment to the Constitution outlawed slavery forever.

Emancipation was not equality, nor was it freedom. The path to equality is proving to be long and steep. But a first step was taken here, at Appomattox.
