Thread Name: Songs of the American Civil War
Subject: RE: Songs of the American Civil War
There are probably several thousand songs around which are directly associated with the war, not to mention the popular songs which the soldiers sang in camp--songs which were extremely popular before the war, and which reminded them of home.

The Ernie Ford Album was most likely a re-release of an LP album which Ford recorded for the centennial of the war in the early 'sixties; I have it on vinyl, but I wouldn't begin to know where to look for it.
