Industry Reviews

"Rousing Songs and True Tales of the Civil War is an anthology of vintage songs and anecdotes from the American Civil War. Each song is fit onto one page, in simple musical notation with the lyrics printed both within the music notation and separately for easy reading. Black-and-white photographs and illustrations embellish the histories behind individual tunes and some just plain eye-popping tales. Especially ideal for Civil War buffs as well as anyone interested in singing vintage pieces or performing them on any simple instrument (the tunes appear to work especially well with a harmonica), Rousing Songs and True Tales of the Civil War perfectly captures the spirit of a troubled and transforming era." -- Midwest Book Review
