The only thing that might keep this from being licensed to PBS for a documentary is that the style of the song is not authentic to the period. But as pure entertainment it works for me!

side note:
the first casualty of the war may have been related to me

One of my ancestors (Great-great uncle) photographed a lot of the War (and, it was said, was Lincoln's favorite photographer)
