Nothing captures the imagination of the students of the Confederacy more than the famous Rebel Yell. Contemporary accounts are filled with references, and whole books have been devoted to it. Yet few people know how the famous shout actually sounded. This new cd, produced by the Museum of the Confederacy, presents the real sound of the yell that inspired Johny Reb and sent chills up the spine of Billy Yank.
This is the soundtrack from Ken Burn's magnificant retelling of the Civil War. This CD includes such classics as Ashokan Farewell, Dixie's Land, Aura Lee, and the song many Union and Confederate General's would not allow their musicians to play for fear of causing me to go AWOl, Lorena. 25 songs in all.
