What They Listened To: 1862

As many of you know MY NOVELS are set in Civil War and post-Civil War America. I thought it would be fun each week to focus on a different year of music from 1860-1900. Maybe my characters were listening to these songs back in the day. ENJOY.

  1. Ah, but would there have been anyone around who sang like Judy!


    1. Probably not. They may have thought she was a bit over-the-top. 🙂

  2. Two great pieces of music – Saint-Saens always moves me with its beauty. As for Garland’s rendition – she looks healthy and sings with the passion few others match.


    1. Judy had a big impact on my childhood. When my parents told me she died of a drug overdose while we watched The Wizard of Oz my heart was broken about the world for a long while.


      1. They are just people after all and they succumb to the same stress and diversions that imprison everyone, just more publicly.


      2. I know. I don’t envy people who were or are child stars. It’s even worse for them. Every year my father would watch Meet Me in St. Louis and get teary-eyed when Judy sang at Christmas to her little sister.
