Ballads of the Civil War

Ballads of the Civil War

Old favorites "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" and "Goober Peas" enjoy Texan attorney-turned-balladeer Hermes Nye's unselfconscious treatment on this balanced compilation of some of the American Civil War's best-known songs. Folkways founder Moses Asch's liner notes, which include newspaper clippings from the 1860s, provide illuminating historical background.
