Civil War Music Site
From the loud field drum that kept everyone in step to the sentimental songs that soldiers sang in their free time, music played an extremely important part in the American Civil War. This site contains everything from fife tunes to song lyrics to photographs of Civil War bands that we have gathered. Whether you are a Civil War buff or a Civil War re-enactor, we hope that you can benefit from the research that we have done and the information that we have put on this site.
Poetry and Music of the War Between the States
The War Between the States was the pivotal event in our Nation's history. If you want only the facts about the conflict, any textbook will do. But if you want to understand the thoughts and emotions of the men who faced each other across the battlefield and those who waited for them at home, look to the poems and songs written during and after the War.
