America Singing: 19th Century Song Sheets Collection in the American memory site (

Descended from the British musical broadsides of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, song sheets disseminated popular songs before the invention of recorded music.
Song sheets were especially popular during the Civil War, recording military movements and reflecting public attitudes about the war. They also honored individual regiments and military and political leaders. The 4,291 song sheets in this new online collection provide a unique perspective on the social, economic, and political issues of the day. Some of America's most beloved songs such as the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" and the "Star Spangled Banner" were printed as song sheets.
Unlike other kinds of sheet music, song sheets were normally single sheets printed with lyrics but no music. The lyrics have been set to the tunes of familiar songs such as "Yankee Doodle" and "The Last Rose of Summer" or to new songs being sung in music halls. Though many songs were serious or dramatic, others were humorous and poked fun at various people or events.
In addition to documenting public opinion, song sheets also document changes in the printing industry. Several companies are highlighted within the collection and users can see how publishing houses relocated and changed over time. The collection also documents the introduction of the mechanized printing press and how this new technology helped to meet the needs of a country that was eager for news and for ways to express itself.
