Songs and Stories

   
 

From pride and patriotism to death and defeat, Civil War Songs and Stories describes how music was as much a part of Army life as a musket. The narrative explains how both sides were accompanied by professional regimental brass bands mustered to preserve morale. The music inspired soldiers and consoled them.  It brought memories from home and gave hope to what would soon seem to be hopeless circumstances.
