Join the TN Historical Society for a free, virtual discussion with Billy Coleman, Assistant Teaching Professor of History, Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy and the Honors College at the University of Missouri. This talk draws on evidence of sixty cases of Confederates being arrested, punished, or getting away with singing, selling, or publishing rebel songs in Union-controlled towns or occupied cities.

The event is part of a series, “Tennessee Music 101: The History of TN Music.” Click here for more information and to register.
