Overview

Down through hundreds of years of history, legends, events, traditions, stories, romantic tales, heroic actions in battles, beliefs, and pathetic happenings have been passed down to future generations through poems adapted for singing. This tradition of handing down these legends, beliefs and stories in this manner accelerated in many countries during tragic and momentous periods of upheaval and turmoil. This was especially true during the North-South conflict of 1861-1865 in the War Between the States. This work consists of an extensively researched compilation of many ballads which reflect the people's feelings, wartime patriotism, fears, sorrow, suffering, sentimentalism, and weariness of war during the most tumultuous period in American history.
