    Many are brilliant.

    The Yellow Rose of Texas
    The Battle Cry of Freedom
    Battle Hymn of the Republic

    But my fave song of all time is the Wild Colonial Boy.

  2. John Pryor says:

    Rainy Days and Mud Marches Always Get Me Down, by Ambrose and the Sideburns

  3. Tom Pilla says:

    I’m a good old rebel.

  4. Joel Manuel says:

    Goober Peas.

  5. Douglas Pauly says:

    There are a surprising number of songs written over the past 50 years or so that have as their subject the Civil War. A link to some of them is below. That said, I’ve always loved the song “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” by The Band. I figure if a song is about the Civil War, then it meets my criteria of “Civil War era”! Heck, we’re still talking about it.

  6. Tenting Tonight

    Bonnie Blue Flag, a jaunty tune that’s fun to sing
