Jon Bartlett US Civil war songs - civil to sing them ? (98* d) RE: US Civil war songs - civil to sing them ? 04 Aug 12

Thanks to all who replied. One song in particular I'd like to sing is "The Cumberland's Crew". It includes such lines as

"An ironclad frigate down on us came bearing
High up in the air her rebel flag flew
An emblem of treason she proudly was waving
Determined to conquer the Cumberland's crew."

I'd like to hear particularly from Southerners, since I've met so (relatively) few. It seems to me that the US is really two nations, and I don't know about the tensions still existing between the two.
