Broadway (Virginia, United States) (search for this): chapter 15
re are you going, soldiers, With banner, gun and sword? We're marching south to Canaan To battle for the Lord. What Captain leads your armies Along the rebel coasts? The mighty One of Israel, His name is Lord of Hosts. Chorus- To Canaan, to Canaan, The Lord has led us forth, To blow before the heathen walls The trumpets of the North. Dixie: the original version Dixie was first written as a walk-a-round by an Ohioan, Dan Emmet, and was first sung in Dan Bryant's minstrel show on Broadway, New York, shortly before the war. It came into martial usage by accident and its stirring strains inspired the regiments on many a battlefield. Curiously enough it was adapted to patriotic words on both sides and remained popular with North and South alike after the struggle was over. Abraham Lincoln loved the tune and considered the fact that it was truly representative of the land of cotton far more important than its lack of adherence to the strict laws of technical harmony.

With the presentation of the spiritual that commemorates an event of the war connected with the Confederate General Drayton, there has come to light a photograph of his home on Hilton Head in 1861. Through these gates, watched by loving eyes, he rode on the milk-white horse, the morning of the engagement at Bay Point. Mr. W. F. Allen, who collected many slave-songs, was tol
Ladies Island (South Carolina, United States) (search for this): chapter 15
the toll of the ‘cruel war’ was not yet complete. Negro spirituals Some of the negro chants or spirituals are particularly interesting because of their direct connection with the incidents of the Civil War. Their sources were generally obscure; their origin seeming to be either by gradual accretion or by an almost unconscious process of composition. Colonel T. W. Higginson told the story of the beginning of one of these slave songs as related to him by a sturdy young oarsman of Ladies Island. Once we boys he said went to tote some rice and de nigger driver lie keep a-callina on us; and I say, O, de ole nigger-driver. Den anudder said, Fust ting my mammy tole me was —notina so bad as nigger drivers. Den I make a sing, just puttina a word ana den anudder word. Thus, said Colonel Higginson, almost unconsciously a new song was created, which was repeated the second time with perfect recollection of the original melody and intonations. The wild, sad strains of these prim<
