Rush the Growler

"'A Song For Our Own':
Songs By, For, and About
the 154th New York Volunteer Infantry"

During the American Civil War, Scott's great-great-grandfather, Cpl. John Langhans, served in the 154th New York Volunteer Infantry.  The regiment was recruited from Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties in Southwestern New York.  They fought at Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and with Sherman on the March to the Sea.  More history about the regiment can be found at The Hardtack Regiment's website.

The CD project, "A Song for Our Own" was meant to tell the story of the the 154th N.Y. through songs and poetry from the time.  Many of the songs used here were well known through the North at the time of the war, and help to illuminate a particular episode in the 154th N.Y.'s history.  Some were written by the soldiers or about them at the time of the war.  The "Army Song of the Cattaraugus Boys," for example, is one of three pieces written by Sgt. James Byron Brown of Company B.  Some of the songs included in this project are poems that were written at the time of, that we matched to melodies that were also popular at the time of the war.
