To light us to freedom and glory again! The Role of Civil War Poetry

"To light us to freedom, and glory again!" The Role of Civil War Poetry

Poetry written during the Civil War era was used as a means of political and social mobilization. Using the Library of Congress's online collections, we will explore how Northern and Southern war poetry helped unify citizens, inspire troops, memorialize the dead, and overcome the anger and resentment of both sides in the aftermath of the war.

Join Library of Congress specialist Peter Armenti, Wednesday, April 27, 2:00 p.m. (E.D.T.) for an exploration of poetry written by Civil War soldiers, abolitionists, and citizenry both North and South. Many of the poems are presented as digital images scanned from nineteenth century books, periodicals, song sheets, and broadsides. Transcripts appear with some poems.
