Ifound it enjoyable to read about where the songs of the Civil War came from. I also didn’t realize a couple of the songs I’m familiar with were written during the War. There were some editing mistakes and it’s a pretty basic, simple book, but a fun little one too.
The theme of this book is History, Because this book has tons of short tales loaded with information and history of the Civil War along with songs to sing along to from the Civil War. Each story is dedicated to a popular song from the Civil War and it tells you the history of the song then it has the lyrics for you.
