‘Lorena,’ a Hit Song of the Civil War

Here’s another beautiful song which many of you have heard without knowing what it is.

“Lorena” was written in the 1850s and was very popular during the Civil War, and for quite a few years afterward. It’s been used countless times in movie and TV sound tracks. The name is an anagram for “Lenore,” the name of the song-writer’s lost love.

If I can hunt up the lyrics for you, they’ll be here. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorena_%28song%29 )
