Music Books

We have compiled a list of fife and drum music from various music books in print during the Civil War, namely Col. H. C. Hart's 1861 Instructor for the Drum and George Bruce and Daniel D. Emmett's 1862 Drummer's and Fifer's Guide. We also play music from the Company of Fifer's and Drummers, Volume 1.
