3.  Here is the civil war song used by Ken Burns for his series.

Show notes state that the song is the same as “Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye.”  “Noted Bandmaster Patrick Gilmore wrote the lyrics for this tune when his band was attached to the 24th Massachusetts Infantry. The tune is the same as the Irish songJohnny, I Hardly Knew Ye” but there is some dispute as to which came first.”
