Project Main Details

Shiloh Southern Soldier Voices 
These are numerous people/voices for a documentary about the Civil War battle of Shiloh. Most are quotes from soldiers; all emotional, some spoken in the midst of combat. Emotion is critical. This particular listing is for voices of southerners and southern soldiers - but no excessive drawls please.

If you do multiple characters, please put variety in the voices so they don't sound like the same person. And please slate with the name of the voice you're doing. We will pay $100 to $150 per character for which you are hired.

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 

Capt. F.A. Shoup, Division Artillery Chief CSA : “Things were looking pretty blue. We lost all of Kentucky and Tennessee. A concentration of all the available troops in the west have been made at Corinth, Mississippi to resist the gravitation of the Federals toward the Gulf, and something had to be done.”

General Albert Sydney Johnston, CSA: “I have put you in motion to offer battle to the invaders of your county… The eyes and hopes of eight million people rest upon you. You are expected to show yourself worthy of your lineage, worthy of the women of the South, whose noble devotion in this war has never been exceeded in any time.
“Tonight, we will water our horses in the Tennessee River!”

Private Thomas Chinn Robertson – 4th Louisiana Infantry CSA “The enemy reserved their fire until we were within about twenty yards of them, and then the whole line simultaneously… opened on us, mowing us down at every volley.”

Pvt. Ralph J. Smith – 2nd Texas Infantry, CSA
“Our victory had seemingly been so complete that it was everywhere reported in the ranks that the battle was over, all we would have to do next day would be to take charge of Grant’s army.”

(rank) Henry M. Doak (unit) CSA
“Just when we were ready to advance, an orderly rode up with an order to retire… Sadly, we fell back, the humblest soldier knowing we were giving up an easy victory.”

(rank) Joseph D. Thompson – 38th Tennessee, CSA - At midnight a heavy rain set in, accompanied by peal after peal of thunder, together with the roaring of the cannon and the bursting of shell. The flashes of lightning revealed the ghastly features of the dead. The groans and piteous shrieks of the wounded was heart-rendering… what a night of horrors that was!”

Judge S.F. Wilson - Who, with this record before him, will dare say that the names of these dead men are not the names of heroes? Who will dare say that they were not patriots The inscriptions on our monument, sanctioned by the representatives of our present great united republic, stamp in historic letters the eternal truth as to the bravery and patriotism of our dead comrades.

M.R. Tunno - on the afternoon of the first day’s fight at Shiloh, called by your side Pittsburg Landing, an officer was seen trying to stop his men from retreat. And when he found that he could not, he deliberately reined his horse and rode slowly off. He was shot and he fell immediately off his horse. General Polk expressed a wish to know who that brave man is. I use his words. And I galloped up to the body and took from his coat breast pocket the enclosed papers, proving him to have been General WHL Wallace of your state. These papers I had sent to my home…and I have only today found them among old papers. I beg to hand them to you with the request that you cause inquiry to be made for his family, and return to them these papers taken from General Wallace’s body, for the purpose of finding out who the brave officer was who lost his life within 75 feet of us. Though an enemy at the time, we could not help but respect him for the brave manner in which he acted when his command was in retreat. I am, sir, yours respectfully, M.R. Tunno.
