Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I discovered these gems of Americana (on cassette tape) when I was visiting the Pea Ridge Civil War Battlefield in Arkansas (both the songs of the CSA and the Union Army). I was delighted to find the CD. The songs provide a poignant glimpse into the human factor of the unimaginable war that shattered our country. They are especially valuable for gaining insight into the rhetoric of both sides. This particular volume ranges from the jingoistic "To Arms for Dixie" of the early part of the war to the bitter lament "Oh, I'm a Good Old Rebel" at the end of the conflict. The Confederate lyrics to "My Maryland" are particularly interesting as far as point of view is concerned: "The Despot's Heel is On Thy Shore!" And the jollity of "'Twas at the Siege of Vicksburg" [to the tune of "Listen to the Mockingbird"] masks an underlying horror of "Listen to the Minie Balls/Parrot Shells"--the lethal missiles of the time. "Lorena" recalls the nostalgia of soldiers on the battlefield, longing for home. My favorite is "All Quiet Along the Potomac Tonight,"--a song that was popular on both sides. The lyrics coupled with the melody are haunting. One of the most catching songs, however, is "Long Ago," written by a Civil War veteran. Its melody will linger in your mind long after the CD comes to an end.

Bobby Horton has a pleasant voice, and he is accompanied by various instruments of the time, guitar, fiddle, dulcimer, harmonica, and sometimes trumpets. The simplicity of his renditions have a genuine sound of the era. These CDs, in fact, would make an excellent teaching tool for a US History course (with an effective instructor). In one of the most exciting classes I ever had on World War I, the Professor gave no lecture; he merely had us walk in and look at posters from both sides--and listen to the music.

These Bobby Horton rarities bring the full flavor of camp singing to life.Always performed in the most authentic manner, I have used this CD in my classes, in my own learning, and for my own enjoyment at home. Well done.

I think that probably Bobby Horton has created a selection of songs here the likes of which one is fortunate to hear only a very few times in his or her lifetime. I`m sure his presentation of songs of the North are no less stirring.

The tragedy that was the War Between The States could not have been captured in music in our time any better. Thank You Bobby Horton

This is a great album, full of fun, historic music. My family has enjoyed it for many years and these days I buy it for friends and relatives. Perfect for anyone who wants to know more about the civil war.
