The ladies of the Fort Randall Chapter No. 2686, UDC have certainly provided a much needed portion of our history; a Southern Song Book with no yankee songs. The trauma inflicted upon the south by their invaders is evidenced in so many of the verses, while the dash and heroism of the boys who wore the gray, and the girls they left behind, is equally evidenced. In this book, you will find photos of both soldiers and officers posed stoically in their uniforms; letters written poignantly written to loves ones at home; as well as poetry and painting recording the war from the Southern perspective. “Songs of the South” is much more than a collection of Confederate songs. It is a recollection of the personal aspects of the War Between the States: the songs sung; the letters written; the hopes and dreams; and the sad farewells.
