In 1828, black-faced minstrel shows were an important part of America. They were begun by Daddy Rice (Thomas B. Rice), who performed by himself. The first group born in the depression of 1842 was Dan Emmett, who com- bined his talent with three other actors. They immediately became a sensation. There were many imitators and one of these was Ed Christie, who organized the great- ~i:~rl'~ Thursday evening, May home of Lola Bane.

Within a year California had 100,000 prospec- tors and by 1853 more than $60,000,000 worth of gold was un- covered. America came of age in the 1860's-1890's. When a shot was fired at Fort Sumter worry was a part of every family. When trying to rally men to join in the service of their country it was learned that songs were an effective means. Songs were used all through the Civil War to generate spirit and dedication to the cause. Songs came and went during the four year struggle, but two en- dured above all others. "Dixie" was in the heart of every South- erner, while "Battle Hymn of the Republic" stirred the blood of ev- ery Northerner. "Dixie" was com- posed by Daniel D. Emmett, a black-faced minstrel in 1859. "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" was written by Julia Ward Howe. Both songs were favorites of Presi- dent Lincoln and he said, "Dixie" was one of the best songs he had ever heard. Wars always seem to inspire UP for 2 TICKETS to the at RFK on MAY 15 !

Everyone was sing- ing "Lorena", "The Bonnie Blue Flag," "The Homespun Dress," "Tenting Tonight", "Goober Peas," "Southern Soldier Boy" and the "Ballad of the Wilderness". One of the best known state song, "Mary- land, My Maryland" was written by a Baltimore native, James Ryder Randell. "Carry Me Back To Old Virginney" was composed by a black man, James Bland of Flushing, N.Y. He wrote the song at the age of twenty, while visiting a plantation in Virginia. "Taps" was composed in 1862 by a Gen- eral Butlefield, who whistled the notes until he felt they were right and then he had his bugler play them. The music was soon adopted as a substitute for the old "Lights Out." The Spanish American war brought us a song, "A Hot Time In the Old Town." When the foreign newspaper reported the song they had trouble with the title. Trans- lation of the French back to En- glish was "There Will Be Warm Weather in the Old City This Evening." Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders probably sang this song on their way up San Juan Hill. Many songs came out of World War I. "It's a Long Way to Tipperary," "Keep the Home Fires Burning," "Over There" and "Smiles" to name a few. (Continued next week 1910- The Present). Recipe: Strawberry Pie Bake a pie shell.
