Can anyone help me with this one???
'One Hundred Years Ago', presumed title, artist unknown, presumably from the early 60's during the Civil War centennials, line in it is akin to 'one hundred years ago, a hundred years ago, the ditches and the streams were all filled with Rebel blood.'
As usual, thanks so much. Cookie

The Limeliters recorded a song called "A Hundred Years Ago" (or "A Hundred Years", according to some sources) originally as a single, RCA Victor 47-7913, in 1961. It is now available on "The Complete RCA Singles Collection", Taragon CD 1071, 2000. Authorship is credited to someone named "Oakes" but I haven't been able to identify this person. I transcribed this much from a sound sample at CDNOW:
...cousin killing cousin, so the story's told.
Before the end, we were to lose five hundred thousand fold.
A hundred years ago, a hundred years ago,
General Grant and General Lee shaped our nation's destiny
A hundred years ago.
Vicksburg, Bull Run, Shiloh, Richmond, Chattanooga too,
Were the many battlegrounds where gray coats met the blue...
