Product Description

Singing the New Nation.  How Music Shaped the Confederacy, 1861 - 1865.  By E. Lawrence Abel.  Mechanicsburg, PA:  Stackpole Books.  2000.  398 pages.  Hardcover.


the book is like new.  the binding is tight and the pages are clean.  the edges of the dust jacket show a little wear.

The  Civil War is sometimes seen as America's romantic war.  Countless novels, movies, plays, poems, lithographs and paintings portray the titanic clash between vast armies of men in colorful uniforms.   More than any other war, it has been seen as a war about feelings and emotions.  

Both sides expressed their feelings and emotions in song.  When the war came, Southern nationalism demanded that the South have its own songs.   Southern songwriters, music publishers and performers rose to the challenge.

Drawing on previously unpublished sources such and newspapers, diaries, and memoirs as well as the songs themselves, this book tells the story of he private lives of generals, ordinary soldiers, and families across the South and the triumph and tragedy that accompanied the Civil War.

The fifteen-page index covers nearly  1,200 entries.
