"Music and Musket: The Role of Music in the American Civil War" illustrates the vital role of Army musicians during one of the most pivotal episodes of American history, the Civil War. Bandleader and musical instrument collector Jeff Stockham brings the sights and sounds of the conflict to your classes, using rare original instruments and artifacts from the 1861-1865 period to perform the bugle, drum, fife, and band music that was essential to the everyday routine of Civil War troops. This unique program brings the music and daily experiences of the Civil War soldier to life.
