The Greenwich Historical Society in conjunction with Greenwich Library will present songs and readings from the Civil War era, looking at both the Union and Confederate musical lexicon. A complement of local musicians on authentic period instruments will frame each year of the War Between the States within a particular context: bravado and marching songs, camp songs, songs of home, spirituals, and songs of victory and defeat.
Conceived and spearheaded by Stefanie Kies in collaboration with Nick Carter and Tim Schantz, the program was originally developed for the Greenwich Historical Society and is offered again in co-sponsorship with Greenwich Library as part of the programming of the Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War exhibition developed by the American Library Association. The performance is designed to appeal to adults as well as middle, high school and college students.
