About this title


10 b/w illustrations,6 x 9
Comprehensive list of sheet music published in the South during the war
Covers all of the known bands of the Confederate army Confederate music extended far beyond "Dixie" and "The Yellow Rose of Texas" and in fact played a significant role throughout the Civil War. From the recruiting songs that celebrated early war efforts to the "lost cause" songs of the Confederacy's last days, this new study chronicles how soldiers and civilians coped with war through their music. Included are many never-before-told histories of patriotic anthems, sentimental songs, operas, and minstrel shows.
