Lost Songs of the Civil War
From camp ditties to re-written versions of popular songs of the day, Civil War soldier’s re-made music to fit their own tastes and reflect the struggles and hardships they faced. Award winning folk musician and folklorist Chris Vallillo takes us deep into the journals and letters of the Civil War troops bringing these rare and unheard gems back to life in a new program, Lost Songs Of The Civil War.
This program is funded in part by the Illinois Arts Council Agency. It will livestream on Looking for Lincoln's Facebook page and YouTube Channel.
