Billy Yank and Johnny Reb had a lot in common. Among the many miseries they shared were seemingly endless marches and equally trying periods in camp. Whether trudging along the dusty road or waiting anxiously around a campfire at night, music was the savior of the common soldier, easing his hardships and relieving his burdens.
Gathered here are musical memories of the most turbulent period in our nation’s history. Cast in its unique format of “Making History Live”, Volume 10 presents seventeen selections that have been frequently requested by our audiences; a blend of humor and pathos; narratives, vocals, and instrumentals that will summon forth a picture of military life in the 1860’s.
