Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the 16 songs presented on this CD celebrate glory, patriotism, and human emotion. Instrumental and vocal selections, accompanied by dulcimer, violin, piano, and guitar, include well-known songs such as "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," and "Tenting on the Old Camp Ground." "All Hail to Ulysses!" was written to praise General Grant. "Marching Through Georgia" was a popular song in the North and "The Bonnie Blue Flag" was so popular in the South that Union General Benjamin Butler confiscated copies of the sheet music when his troops occupied New Orleans. The informative 27-page booklet of liner notes is a useful tool for classroom teachers because it offers a brief introduction to each selection, placing the song in its historical context as well as explaining its meaning. Lyrics are also provided. With all the Civil War books and visuals sure to flood the market, this CD is an innovative way for students to study the war and consider its human impact.—Patricia Ann Owens, Illinois Eastern Community Colleges, Mt. Carmel, IL
