Thread Name: Songs about American Historical events
Subject: RE: Songs about American Historical events
Check the SMITHSONIAN FOLKWAYS site - there were many albums devoted
to songs related to American History Seeger, House, et.al. Wars, Frontier, Gold Rush, Elections,....
The album notes (which usually include texts) are available in pdf
format, free to anyone who wishes to look.
Oscar Brand also did numerous albums related to elections, history usw.

Best wishes, Thomas.
