    150 years ago, the Civil War enveloped the lives of all Americans.  Their hardships, pain, sorrow, grief and strength are expressed in the songs of the era.  A selection of the music is on display at the Selle-Agner exhibit, “Music of the Civil War”, in Pontiac, IL.  Come to see and hear history come alive and know why it has been said that “The Civil War was the the only war fought to music!”
