Did you make or find this video?

The song was very intresting and the lyrics were very good.I liked the picture of the men playing the banjo also.

I like the banjo a lot, it makes the song a lot better. Very historic.

I found that one. Somebody did a really good job,didn't they? This was a very popular song (and it will be mentioned in the story later), and I wanted to show actual pictures to help kids get a sense of what the war was like.

Glad you guys liked it!

I found this video very interesting.The music made it all come together.

This Was A Fantastic Vidio!
