Thread Name: Help: Camptown Races (Stephen Foster) Background
Subject: Stephen Foster Tune Background
May I beg assistance from some of the many fine historians here? Camptown races was based on a real town. I believe it was in New Jersey. After the song became popular, the town changed it's name in chagrin. Can anyone identift it for me?
