ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The research team for The Birth of Freedom project was Spring Green Multimedia. Jo Stroud Muster, John C. Muster, Dorothy Ann Goddard McKinney and Richard L. McKinney comprised this outstanding team. They spent several years reading through materials in archives, which included original letters, searching for informatiion on each signer. The narrator was the gifted and dedicated Bob Lockwood. He was one of those rare people who believed that only his best effort should be given in any task undertaken. The eighty plus hours he spent recording The Birth of Freedom began only a few days after Bob was diagnosed with lung cancer. In great pain, but not defeated, he called up his deepest reserves of strength in order to complete the project. After listening to his completed work and just a few days before his death, Bob wrote, "I had often wondered as to the fate of all the signers of the Declaration, and now I am being of help in opening the doors of this information to hopefully thousands of folks who also want to know. Narrating the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence represents a crowning achievement in my life's work. As long as one student or one heart listens then I am sure good will come and my efforts will be remembered." The purpose of our research was two fold: 1) to learn what happened to each man after he signed the Declaration of Independence, and 2) to show that each man, just like each of us, had problems, faults, strong points and weaknesses. Yet, they crystallized their thinking and courage at a time when the whole world needed the light of freedom. They publicly explained their position in the Declaration of Independence and by so doing placed their lives in jeopardy. The last line of the Declaration of Independence states, "...we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor." 56 men then signed their names. Did it cost any of them their lives, their fortunes or their sacred honor? These basic questions we have attempted to answer.

Bob Clement wrote, "THE BIRTH OF FREEDOM brings history alive. The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence sacrificed everything - life, family, property - to insure our freedom. The quality of the CD production is outstanding. The 'voice' moves you to listen intently and absorb each of these special people that had an important role in the 'Democratic Experiment.' I endorse THE BIRTH OF FREEDOM and appreciate it's place in our society as a teaching tool and a reflection of the past as we prepare for the future." (Bob Clement served Tennessee's 5th District in the United States Congress for 15 years)

Jimmy Sturr has won 19 Grammys and is without a doubt the world's most popular and beloved Polka King. He wrote, "I just finished listening to the wonderful narrations of Bob Lockwood on THE BIRTH OF FREEDOM. What a wonderful collection. It truly is touching and Mr. Lockwood does a wonderful job. Thanking you for sharing these recordings with us."

Senator Charlie W. Albertson (North Carolina General Assembly) wrote: "This is a must-have for any student of history."

Produced by Harrison Tyner, Gene Leviner, Ed Haun and Tom Pick, The Birth of Freedom is a package consisting of 7 CDs, 6 of which contain Bob Lockwood's audio on each of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. The 7th CD in the package is a PC compatible computer disc consisting of introduction data and written text of the audio on each signer in PDF format.
