The dulcimer was popular in the United States during the Civil War, and music of that era seems right at home played on this unique instrument. Many tunes and songs in this program are still familiar today, such as When Johnny Comes Marching Home, The Battle Hymn of the Republic, and Home, Sweet, Home.Presenter: Phil Passen
