Band Music from the Civil War Era


"Band Music from the Civil War Era," created by the Library of Congress, is a fascinaing site to explore. It's easy to step back in time when viewing pictures of mustached, patriotic soldiers grouped together in their bands while listening to the lively military marching music. The website is organized into the following sections: "The American Brass Band Movement," "A Concert for Brass Band, Voice, and Piano," "Photo Gallery" and "About the Instruments." Every section provides both reading and listening pleasure. Modern day bands and vocalists meticulously copy the sounds of mid-19th century music. This site serves cross-curricular needs for the study of music and its place in history.
