      Description hide

      These thirteen authentic maritime songs from the era of the American Civil War (1861-65) intone the story of war on the water. They were sounds of the cramped quarters of Union and Confederate fighting ships as well as merchant craft that sailed in constant peril, of bustling taverns and variety theaters where sailors and citizens alike recharged their patriotic spirit, and of the parlors of homes where loved ones waited in fear and longing. Drawn from Northern, Southern, and British sources, they are performed by an all-star crew of singers and musicians. 52 Minutes, 36-Page booklet, extensive notes and historic images.
