Thread Name: Correct location for historical song?
Subject: RE: Correct location for historical song?
"The Civil Rights Movement in the American South was largely recorded in verse, as was the Poaching Wars, The Enclosures, the fight for the vote, for better conditions in the mines and mills..."

There are many songs about the poaching wars, and about transportation too.
John Clare describes the enclosures in his verse, but there seem to be very few songs specifically about them.
