Abstract
This is an item from the Confederate Imprints Collection: Sheet Music. The short-lived Confederacy produced more than 7,000 books, pamphlets, broadsides, maps, pieces of sheet music, pictures, and periodicals. All of the publications produced in Confederate states not held by Union forces are known as Confederate imprints. The printed music included songbooks, sheet music, and broadside ballads. Songsters, inexpensive collections of secular song lyrics, were not a popular book genre in the South until after the Civil War began. However, Confederate publishers put out more songsters during the four years of war than they had during the preceding four decades. The lyrics held within the songsters, many of which were patriotic, helped to keep up southern morale. Soldiers comprised much of the audience for morale-boosting publications such as songsters.
