Project Main Details

American Battlefield Cemetery 
This project is for two American military cemeteries in Belgium and France. There are two short -5-6 minute programs to be recorded. We are looking for a rich and sonorous voice with emotion, passion, and conviction. These are at once somber but uplifting pieces that celebrate America's war dead. We may choose two voices from the casting. $600 for an individual recording of one script or $900 if we cast one voice for two scripts.

Script Details

NARRATOR: The bloody Meuse Argonne (Muse R-gone) offensive in the fall of 1918 had left over 26,000 Americans dead.

Men torn apart by a new kind of mechanized warfare…

…killed so fast and in such vast numbers, they had to be buried in makeshift graves.

Corporal Howard Ramsey recalled, “This was the best these men could receive during the stress of battle, but now that the war is over these men are being put in a more fitting resting place.”

Creating this “fitting resting place” would prove to be a daunting and gruesome undertaking.

Companies of African American soldiers meticulously combed the war-ravaged fields and forests in search of shallow, improvised graves.

For years, they dug up, transported, and reburied bodies in a cemetery near the town of Romagne (Ro-main) — where some of the heaviest fighting of the battle had taken place.

This land would later be given to the United States by a grateful French nation [pause] And become known as the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery.
