"Crossbows: Tunes from the second American War of Independence"
You may have never have heard music like this, real fife and drum music! bBased on music developed for early battlefields as a means of transmitting orders, then into tunes for marching and entertainment. This CD comes out of Texas, and contains Civil War music dating back to the American Revolution. One of a kind CD, done exclusively for The Revolutionary War Veterans Association. It is hard to recreate the image of long-ago times, but much easier to recreate the sounds of those times, and this CD will carry you right back to Revolutionary and Civil War days. A nice gift for that Satanic-music-loving niece or nephew or - heaven forbid - son or daughter. Or, if you do not want them hanging around you, play this CD, and keep it playing. They will find something to do elsewhere... So be an American, and enjoy your martial military heritage with these authentic sounds of the battlefield of the second American Revolution - the Civil War, the War Between the States, the "late unpleasantness", the War for Southern Indpendence, the Rebellion, etc.
