Winners and Losers: Campaign Songs from the Critical Elections in American History, Vol. 1

Winners and Losers: Campaign Songs from the Critical Elections in American History, Vol. 1

This album features campaign songs and slogans from U.S. presidential campaigns between 1800 and 1876. Listeners will recognize some familiar tunes like "Yankee Doodle" and "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too," but the album includes many less familiar songs as well, such as "People's Nominee" about the election of Abraham Lincoln. High school teacher and folk singer Peter Janovsky performs all the songs on this collection. His liner notes provide extensive historical information on the elections during this formative period in American history as well as song lyrics.
