Title:Last Note to Victory
Author(s):Schwartz, Scott W.
Contributor(s):Stromberg, Marten
Subject(s):Music, America's Civil War, Civil War Bands, King Elementary School 5th Grade Class Project
Abstract:The 5th grades classes of the King Elementary School helped compose a new song, "Last Note to Victory" for their Civil War learning module taught by Scott Schwartz and Marten Stromberg during the 2014 spring semester. The song is loosely based on the military bands of the Union Army's Company H of the 114 Pennsylvania Infantry Zouaves and the Confederate Army's 26th North Carolina Regiment. Both regimental bands played throughout the Civil War, and each were eventually imprisoned as non-combatant soldiers; the Company H band was captured December 16, 1862 and sent to Libby Prison and the 26th North Carolina Regiment band was captured on April 2, 1865 and imprisoned at Point Lookout, Maryland. While both bands' instruments were confiscated as part of the capture, when they were released they were able to quickly acquire new instruments and continued playing as a band. After the war concluded on April 9, 1865 the North Carolina band returned to Salem, North Carolina on July 2, 1865 to serve as the community's Moravian band.
