This epilogue sketches some of the political dimensions of music in the Civil War initially via Francis Scott Key’s daughter, Ellen Key Blunt, who extended her father’s patriotic songwriting tradition by writing songs, not in support of the Union, but instead of the Confederacy. It summarizes the central contributions of the book and concludes with the argument that harnessing harmony could also mean preserving privilege.
