Music was a prominent part of northern and southern culture before 1861, but the Civil War catapulted music to a new level of cultural significance. This book provides understanding of Civil War music and explores the central role it played in the lives of the Americans. It sheds light on how and why some Civil War songs became popular and exposes some of the ways in which Civil War society and culture functioned.
