Thread Name: Fifty Songs Everyone Should Know
Subject: RE: Fifty Songs Everyone Should Know
I agree with many of the songs mentioned, most of which are very common. But there are some excellent historical songs that very clearly express pivital points in history I think should be taught more than they are. Off the top of my head these include:

Blacksmith of Brandywine (American Revolution)
March on Fort Sackville (Seige against a French fort in Indiana during French & Indian War)
Marching to Georga (Civil War song)
Lorena (Civil war Song)
Battle of Shilo Hill (Song imortalizing one of the Bloodiest battles of the civil war.
Bread and Roses (Union Song)
Solidaridy Forever (Union Song)
Byker Hill (Mining Song)
Blantyre Explosion (Song about a Mining Disaster)
Drill ye Tarrers Drill (Mining Song)
