From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9 A veteran music writer brings together a dozen significant songs from the U.S. Civil War period as the focus of a lively musical history lesson. As in his earlier songbooks covering the westward expansion, the American Revolution, and African-American history, Silverman devotes a short, readable chapter to each of his selections. Among them are tunes from both sides of the conflict ("The Battle Cry of Freedom," "Dixie's Land") and from slave society ("Free at Last"), all set to music, with multiple verses included. The importance of these songs to their original listeners and performers is illustrated through vivid anecdotes of military and civilian life in both the Union and the Confederacy. Lists of recommendations for further listening and reading, crisp black-and-white reproductions of period illustrations and photos, and attractive page layouts add to the appeal of this useful resource. -Starr E.

From Booklist:

Gr. 6-9. Silverman, who also wrote Songs and Stories of the American Revolution (1994), presents a dozen songs of the Civil War. Each selection is introduced with a chapter detailing its history, commenting on changes and parodies, and relating anecdotes that bring the period into sharper focus. Then the song itself is presented with multiple verses, piano and guitar music, and a list of recommended recordings. Along the way, readers will learn about facets of American life such as the minstrel show ("Dixie's Land") and campaign songs ("Lincoln and Liberty Too"), as well as the importance of the songs to soldiers and civilians on both sides of the conflict. Black-and-white reproductions of period photos, engravings, paintings, and drawings illustrate the text. A good resource offering an interesting sidelight on the times. Carolyn Phelan
