My Podcast!

Subject of my audio track

When given this topic, I immediately knew I wanted to talk to my father, Tom Iezzi. He is very informed on the history of the United States, more specifically, about the history of Virginia. I told him the guidelines and told him he could pick any topic he would like to. He ended up going with the Civil War, and what he thinks are the most important events from them.

The Process

To record my audio, I used my phone to record this with a pair of headphones that had a microphone on them. I then used soundtrap to edit my audio. Since we had previously used it in class, I did not have too hard of a time figuring everything out. I used Ben Sounds for both of my audio clips.

Here is the link to my source used to verify the information Tom gave me. This link takes us to an article by American Battlefield Trust article about Gettysburg. I reviewed all the information posted and compared it to the information that I was given. I found that the information Tom gave me was in fact accurate.

Here is a copy of my transcript

Hello, my name is Gracie Iezzi and today I am here with Tom Iezzi who is very knowledgable about the Civil War. Today, we are going to be talking about what he thinks are the three most significant events of the Civil War. The first of the three most important events is Fort Sumter, where the Civil War started. The second most significant event of the American Civil War is Gettysburg. It was a horrific 3 day battle. It was the turning point of the war, and that’s when Lee invaded the North and his plan failed,. It was also where Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address. The third significant event is Appomattox. This is where the Civil War ended. With General Lee surrendered his army. The war was over and the reunification of the country began. Thank you for your time.
