The Blue and the Gray
- Hal Leonard Corporation
In 1866, a women's memorial association in Mississippi tended the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers, treating the dead as equals despite the lingering rancor of war, inspiring this poem by Francis Miles Finch. This musical treatment has been created with simplicity and tenderness, ideal for a Civil War retrospective, Memorial Day or other occasions.
