It is tempting to add some of the modern day renditions of songs that were popular during the Civil War, but that is a whole other project. Who doesn't like "Jine the Cavalry"?
I know I mentioned "Cold Harbor" at the top but I think I will change course a bit and show one for the Trans-Mississippi. This is a cover of "Ben McCulloch" which I feel is every bit as good as the original. Give it a listen! Steve Earle did the original and it is also on YouTube.
And if you have made it this far reading my post, here is "Cold Harbor" by the Outlaws. It is perhaps one of the most mournful songs I have heard. Its only drawback is the extended instrumental at the end but it is still a great song.
I wonder if there is a market for this album?
