"Without music, we could not have an army"

Robert E. Lee

General Lee knew the importance of spirit in an army. As in all ages of history music played a big role in the lives of the common soldier. Music could lift the troops’ spirits or it could dampen it. Such songs as “Home Sweet Home“, or “Weeping Sad And Lonely” were at periods banned from the camps as they made the troops homesick. Others, such as “The Bonnie Blue Flag’ were rousing to Johnny Reb as “Battle Cry Of Freedom” was to Billy Yank. On this page are some links to pages pertaining to the music of the Civil War.
