Book Synopsis
These songs were extremely popular during the Civil War. Unheard for over a century and a half, they were a vital part of life during their time. They tell the day-to-day stories of lives, desires, opinions, politics, and feelings of the people, stories that can't be found in history books.
Originally published without music notation - lyrics only - as song sheets, broadsides and in songsters. The melodies have been carefully researched for accuracy, then adapted and arranged by Ed Swanzey, professional musician and history buff, and descendant of a Civil War veteran. Written here in modern notation with chord symbols, and transposed for easy play by period and modern folk instruments.
A unique and important contribution to music and Civil War history. It is a must-have for anyone wanting deeper knowledge of Civil War music, society, and a feeling for the times. They are a long-needed addition to Civil War musicians' repertoires.
8.5" X 11", spiral bound to lay flat.
