Civil War Band - "The two generals had gotten together and agreed upon a truce of sorts, before the battle resumed the next day. The Union band started playing songs, a common occurrence and a pick-me-up for northern soldiers. The Confederates were close enough to hear and would yell across the empty fields. Imagine that: in the cold and damp winter, mostly shoeless Confederates who would yell “That’s a great one,” across the field and finally “Play some of ours!!” to remind them of home."
