American Civil War Music

(1861-1865)

NOTE: many more Civil War era songs are included among my featured composers' webpages, several of which, such as those by Stephen Collins Foster, George Frederick Root and Henry Clay Work, were among the most popular.

SPECIAL NOTE: I am very pleased and honored to have permission to have my arrangement available on a special tribute page for the song Ashokan Farewell (1983) by Jay Ungar which was made "famous" by Ken Burn's PBS miniseries documentary The Civil War (1990).
