Project Main Details

Uncle Ben former slave 
We are producing a short animated film about Abraham Lincoln's daily life when he lived at the "Soldiers' Home" in Washington, DC (1860s). This was a residence 3 miles north of the city, where he lived during the summer months. He would commute to the White House every morning and evening via horseback.

This film is called "Lincoln's Commute" and it is an illustrated/animated look at some of the sights, sounds, and characters that he would have seen along his daily journey.

One of the places he stops is at a contraband camp, or a camp for escaped slaves. He stands with them while they sing spirituals. "Uncle Ben" was a member of the camp who often preached to the group. He was was a former slave from Maryland, so he would have a mid-Atlantic accent and poor English. He should have a deep voice and be middle-aged, and DEFINITLEY AFrican American.

The recording lenght will be FIVE seconds and the full script is provided.
