Thread Name: Songs of the American Civil War
Subject: RE: Songs of the American Civil War
I'm just reading Burke Davis's "Jeb Stuart, The Last Cavalier" and was struck earlier today by how often he cites the songs Stuart sang or had his camp musicians play. Apart from being informative on that, it's just a good read about a very colorful figure and one helluva military strategist.



P.S. — Leej, if you live anywhere close to Gettysburg or can get there sometime, the park's headquarters has a great selection of CDs and tapes of CW songs. I don't know if they have a cybersite that would list what they have, but it might be worth checking out. And, of course, stores in the town probably expand what's available.
