Union Bugler and Sergeant 1st Cavalry Division, Army of Potomac 1863
The American Civil War, or the War between the States, was fought between 1861 and 1865. It was perhaps one of the most defining and tragic chapters in American history. It is also known as one of the 'modern wars' with a grim preview of what was to come in future conflicts.
Field music played a vital role in the armies of both sides during the American Civil War. It told a soldier when to wake, when to retire, when to eat, and when to seek medical attention. It called him to drill, dress parade, fatigue duty, guard duty, and worship.
