Thank you for supporting my blog and homeschool!
See my full Disclosure statement for more information.
 At the beginning of the year my girls and I had the chance to listen to G.A. Henty's radio drama In Freedom’s Cause by Heirloom Audio Productions, and we loved every second of it! So.......we were so excited when we had to opportunity to also review Heirloom Audio Productions’ latest audio drama, With Lee in Virginia, also based on a G.A. Henty's historical novel.  
What we received:
  • 2-Cd “Active Listening” audio book, 2+ hours!
  • With Lee in Virginia E-Book Study Guide
  • Printable copy of the inspirational quote discovered in a letter from Robert E. Lee to his son
  • The Official With Lee in Virginia Soundtrack MP3 download.
  • Unlimited access to the Live The Adventure Letter E-Newsletter.
  • G.A. Henty's original With Lee in Virginia E-Book with all new colorful graphics. 
  • Promotions poster that you can download and print
I am a total history lover and that probably adds to my love of this Christian audio drama, but with an all star cast like the one they compiled, how could you not love it! As you can see from the picture below, there were some great people involved in this production, and they will keep you glued to your seat the entire time!
With me being fairly new to homeschooling, I am realizing that having a variety of resources at my fingertips, always helps my girls learn better. That is where Heirloom Audio Productions has helped me. As you listen to this radio theatre, you will hear accounts of many of the major battles of the Civil War and will become “acquainted” with historical figures such as Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. I feel that this would be a great  supplement to a Civil War study, or even Early American History study. Outside of the classroom, this would be a great listen on a rainy day, and a good reminder of where our country has come from.

With Lee in Virginia tells the story of Vincent, a high spirited boy from Virginia and his friend Dan and their experiences during the Civil War. As the boys experience war up close and personal they learn some things about themselves and their character. I love the way that the story lends to discussing the importance of God's Word and a relationship with Him.

How We Used the Product:

The fact that this was made into a 2-CD audo book is great. That means we are able to take it with us anywhere we go. So.......we took the CDs with us in the car and listened as we ran errands. It was a great way to enjoy the dramatization together.
The study guide is a great discussion starter and really helped my girls understand the story even better.
My Bottom Line:
We loved it!! Heirloom Audio Productions has created a masterpiece yet again! This is a must have for any homeschool! With Lee in Virginia is top notch and is a great addition to your homeschool library.
