Book Description:
Early Songs of Uncle Sam, by George Stuyvesant Jackson

E-Book Edition ISBN 9780828324518

In George Stuyvesant Jackson’s book is a collection of songs popular in the United States mid-1800, and as such it furnishes a most illuminating picture of the life of those times. The current ditties of the days when people did a lot of singing around the fireside, or at political rallies, are included here, and today's reader will discover from them more than he can glean from the impersonal pages of history books.

Robert S. Hillyer said: ". . .Mr. Jackson has brought to light new and fascinating material which he has edited with skill and humor. It should find a welcome at this period of interest in the social history of America." Professor Jackson's work is a complete one, and his dis¬cussions of the songs are more than merely informative. It is safe to say that both the student of early Americana, and the reader seeking only a few hours' sentimental com¬munion with his ancestors, will find his comments enlighten¬ing and entertaining.
