For Your Listening Pleasure...

Since everyone is starting to role-play, why not some music to help fuel the imagination?

I've compiled a short list of the many, many, patriotic songs that came out of the Civil War era into a happy .zip file for the community to download. This includes both patriotic and military music of the time. Only one of the songs is just a patriotism inducing little diddy from the HBO Short Series, John Adams. Shenandoah is a folk song not from the Civil War Period, but I thought was worthy enough of being tacked on. If anyone is interested in the entire soundtrack of aforementioned series, PM/IM me for file transfer. Enough of my babbling, have this:

The Playlist is as Follows:

1. Opening Titles from the John Adams Soundtrack [Unrelated]
2. Dixie [I Wish I Was in the Land of Cotton] performed by Bobby Horton [Confederacy]
3. When Johnny Comes Marching Home performed by Unknown [Patriotic]
4. Dixie’s Land performed by Tennessee Ernie Ford [Confederacy-Vocal Version]
5. Battle Hymn of the Republic performed by Unknown [Union]
6. Johnny Rebel performed by David Allen Coe [Confederacy]
7. Ashokan Farewell from the Civil War Soundtrack [Unrelated]
8. Shenandoah performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir [Folk]


If there is enough interest, I also have other songs from that period, as well as other American military music.

[I hope I"m allowed to post this] D:

Oooh, this is lovely! I have a massive soft spot for the Ashokan Farewell; it's one of my favorite songs.

*has the entire Gettysburg soundtrack, if anyone is interested*

I'll have to wait until I can get on my own computer, but I'll upload it as soon as I can. :D

Can't download due to some weird IP address issue... ugh, Rapidshare.

The Gettysburg OST would be a real blast though.

Aw, that sucks. If you really want it, I can file transfer to you. :3

Inorite? I want.

Nah, it's fine. On the side, though it's not quite in the same league as those rousing orchestral war tracks, The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" is another fine number about the Civil War worth a hear, for the discriminating listener.
