Confederate Heroes Day: Brownsville Texas

Since 1973, the Texas legislature combined the previously official state holidays of Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis’ birthdays into a single Confederate Heroes Day and designated January 19 to honor the 90,000 Texans who served the Southern Cause during the War Between the States. I’ve been asked to provide the music for this event. I’ll be doing songs from my CD of Civil War songs, The Bard of the South. You can sample the songs here:
