Col. John Pattee, a fiddler from Michigan, recorded two sides in 1924. Google his name. There was a great family website that featured photos of his vaudeville tour of Civil War fiddlers. A couple of other fiddlers who may have been veterans were Henry Gilliland of Oklahoma, who recorded in 1922 (with Eck Robertson), and Capt. Moses Bonner of Texas in 1924 or 25. Two sides each.

Does anybody know if there are other Civil War soldiers besides Polk Miller who later made recordings? An interesting question. Reply to me or the list and I will forward to the individual. David Seubert UCSB ------------------ Sir, You have several recordings by Polk Miller. Miller, a great favorite of Mark Twain, and a now all but forgotten once major American musician, may be best remembered for the pet products he produced for his dog "Sergeant." "Sergeant's" is still a best selling brand after over a century. Miller was a Confederate soldier, took his banjo along to war, and served in the same Batteries as my great grandfathers. You have a copy of his singing "The Bonnie Blue Flag"; which with "Dixie" comprised The South's two most popular National Songs. Surely he played this song hundreds of times in camp (See Ted Turner's cameo comment in *Gods and Generals.),* along the road to Gettysburg etc. Surely my ancestors, whose saving his obituary etc. reflects a friendship, heard him regularly. . It brings The War close to today. But I wonder is this the only surviving rendition of one of the two major Southern hymns, by a Confederate Soldier? Is this the only surviving recording of a Civil War Song made by a participant on either side? There are millions of relics of The War, but I never thought there would be an audible one. Thanks.
