American Civil War
Between the Union and the seceding Confederate States
Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrenders to Grant at Appomattox
â€œSaid the wounded drummer boyâ€
â€œOur Jimmy has gone for to live in a tentâ€
â€œAnd will live and die together in the Army of the Freeâ€
â€œWe will rally from the hillside, we'll gather from the plainâ€
â€œShe's the sweetest rose of color this soldier ever knewâ€
â€œGoodness, how delicious, Eating goober peas!â€
â€œOur heads will soon lie down, Lorenaâ€
â€œSunshine came along with thee, and swallows in the airâ€
