Title
Civil War Sheet Music
Description
Offering a contemporary perspective from both sides of the conflict, this collection of sheet music addresses such subjects as emancipation (represented by polkas and quicksteps), constitutional reconstruction, reconciling the nation, and of course, songs heralding the Union or the Confederacy. In addition to the music, it is worth noting the many striking cover illustrations, particularly conventional portraits of generals, to battlefield scenes, to the popular image of Jefferson Davis escaping in petticoats. The collection is limited to music about the war and therefore does not include every piece of sheet music published during the war. web presentation | Sheet music (Contents).
