      Confederate Imprints Collection: Sheet Music
      http://content.lib.ua.edu/cdm4/results.php?CISOOP1=exact&CISOFIELD1=CISOSEARCHALL&CISOROOT=all&CISOBOX1=Confederate+Imprints+Collection

      As the United States continues to explore the legacy of the Civil War, this
      timely collection adds to the conversation. The University of Alabama
      Libraries Digital Collection has created this collection of printed music
      created between 1861 and 1865 in the Confederacy. During its short-lived
      existence, the Confederacy produced more than 7,000 books, pamphlets,
      broadsides, maps, pieces of sheet music, pictures, and periodicals. Many
      collections of songs, known as songsters, were created during this period.
      The patriotic lyrics of these songs kept up southern morale, and they are
      interesting documents for musicologists, historians, and others. This
      collection features 50 pieces of music, including ballads like "Bonny Jean"
      and quick-steps like "Beauregard Manassas." Visitors can look over the
      pieces at their leisure, and those persons with a visual bent will be
      fascinated by the cover art for each musical composition. [KMG]
