Civil War era music
For discussing music that was played around the time of the American Civil War (1861-1865). Discussion is not limited to only dulcimer playing.
Please start a new discussion for each song you'd like to talk about, using the song's title as the thread subject. Exploring the history and background of tunes and songs is encouraged.
Please do not post copyrighted songs or material, such as tabs copied from other people's books. (A reminder: "Ashoken Farewell" is a modern copyrighted composition by Jay Unger, not a traditional Civil War tune.) Enjoy!
