[Themed] The War of Northern Aggression, Part 2

3 Dec

The pangs of guilt I feel for having not updated my blog have led me away from my studies (which ironically enough at the moment consists of reading a book called The Confederate War) to bring you, loyal reader, a second installment of the ongoing series of songs with a fratricidal flourish…so with no further gilding the lily and absolutely no adieu whatsoever I give you some additional selections.

The Band – The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (From The Band)

There is no stretch to be made while explaining this song’s relevance to the topic put forth–it’s just a straight-up tale of the Civil War from a Confederate perspective.

Josh Ritter – Girl in the War (From The Animal Years)

It is worth noting that women disguised as men saw combat for both the Union and Confederacy during the war. Women’s contributions on the home front also should not be overlooked.
