Gerry's Monologue -
"This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...

...the Civil War was fought to music. Band music, field music, singing groups, pianos in the parlor, patriotic songs, sentimental songs, all kinds of music. Today, our guest, Christian McWhirter will talk about battle hymns, the power and popularity of music in the Civil War. It is an introspective and academic look at the music that was played through the years, 1861-1865 the North and the South. Join us for Battle Hymns, with Christian McWhirter, today on Civil War Talk Radio."
