Thread Name: Songs of the American Civil War
Subject: RE: Songs of the American Civil War
In a recent issue of Civil War Times there is an article called And the Generals Sang! It discusses several tunes in the DT such as Lorena, Tenting Tonight, Dixie's Land, etc. But several are mentioned that I couldn't find. If anyone has tunes or lyrics, I would greatly appreciate it. I find these songs very moving. The songs I am seeking are "The Blue Juanita","The Hebrew Maiden", "Jine the Cavalry", "Bonnie Jean" and one that contains the line "Sweet Evelina,dear Evelina, my love for you shall never,never die". The last line is from a tune favored by JEB Stuart.

Thanks, LEJ
