The story of the American Civil War cannot be told only on the battlefield. As the struggle of war continued, music played an even more important role. Through the stories and songs of the common Civil War soldier, both Union and Confederate, and those that emanated from quiet parlors of the folks back home and transcended the anguish of the slave quarter. Music from this period in history gave hope for better times, consoled endless sorrow and inspired the ideal of freedom.
