Singing, Soldiering, and Sheet Music in America during the First World War (Hardcover) (Christina Gier)
about this item
Singing was important to the American fight against Germany in 1917. Military culture and sheet music writers understood music to have the power to help create a strong military and community in the face of conflict. This study of sheet music and military singing practices critically situates them in the context of the war and in social discourses, including issues of social change, segregation, and suffrage.
