Product Description
Most of us that teach US History have a genuine passion for the subject. Yet we sometimes get caught up in teaching about dynamic people, landmark events and laws, and important dates. At times this can be boring and less than stimulating to our students. Good teachers are constantly looking for better ways to instruct and motivate their students.

One of the ways I have used in the classroom is to use music as a technique. Music can be a meaningful “window” into the past. I have found great success in using this method. Attached are power points for some of the songs of an era that you can use in the class room as a change of pace in your teaching.

Because of copyright restrictions, I am unable to send you the actual music. To get the music you can find virtually all of the music on You Tube. If you are unable to locate the music on the internet, send me an email and I will burn a CD for a small fee and mail it to you.

There are a number of solo artists and musical groups that specialize in Civil War era music. Bill Schutik, Bobby Horton and Rusty McNeil are among the best solo artists and they have a number of albums available that has a wealth of songs. The best musical group that has a number of albums recorded is the 2nd South Carolina String Band. There is also a companion music video to the iconic Ken Burns Civil War video series – the video is called Songs of the Civil War.

Please email me for the additional power points.
