So the answer to this question of my favorite Civil War song is "I don't know". There is a flute song on an episode of Civil War Journal that I absolutely love, but don't know the name of it... maybe someone here can help me out. The song starts at 3:05

No idea…it’s catchy, that’s for sure. It sounds like so many tunes played between Revolutionary War and the CW.

It sure is. I've been trying to research it, but have come up short.
I don't know what the song is, but here's the list of tunes that are on the soundtrack for that documentary. The only ones I don't recognize are #3 Lost at Sea and #10 Monitor Versus the Virginia. It might be one of those, but I can't find a recording of the soundtrack online, so you'd have to buy it or find someone with a copy.

1. Main Title (02:07)
2. Dixie - Dawn Before Battle (04:48)
3. Lost at Sea (08:30)
4. Gettysburg (06:01)
5. 54th Massachusetts (06:36)
6. I'm a Good Old Rebel (03:30)
7. Fort Sumter (05:01)
8. Rebel Soldier (02:13)
9. When Johnny Comes Marching Home (04:01)
10. Monitor Versus the Virginia (05:39)
11. John Brown's War (04:07)
12. John Brown's Body (03:15)
13. Amazing Grace - Endtitle (03:49)
Total Duration: 00:59:37

What are some of your favorites? Please post links so we can enjoy. Here are a few of my favorites:





Bonnie Blue Flag is such a good tune. Catchiest melody ever.
Music was so important in keeping up soldiers' spirits -- whether marching or on the eve of another battle. My understanding is that some were sung by soldiers on both sides! -- Dixie, Lorena, Tenting Tonight. There may be others.

Tennessee Ernie Ford

I will never forget his trademark phrase when he was doing the Martha White cornmeal adverts :
" It's pea-pick'n good"

:bounce:

My Father actually had to spend two days with Tennessee Ernie Ford on a business weekend back in the late 1960s.
( At the height of Ford's popularity).

Dad said he was a very nice guy, down to earth ... and could not understand his popularity.

For those that have never heard of this fellow, here's a quick video:
