Memorial Day we remember the men and women who died while serving in our armed forces. Originally called Decoration Day, the tradition originated after the Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who lost their lives during the war. It's claimed that the songs from this era could be arranged in chronological order and could sum up the conflicts, the events, the characters, the ideals and principals of the opposing sides and make a complete history. Join Siobhan Kierans to explore how the Civil War played an important role in the development of American music.
