The 2nd South Carolina String Band is a recreation of a Civil War camp band. The six musicians in this group met in the same way as did those musicians amongst the Volunteers of ’61 – as riflemen in a company of infantry. They formed this band as they did – to entertain themselves and their compatriots around the campfire. This collection of songs is presented with the unique and individual spirit one would expect from a true Confederate camp band.
