A Johnny Reb Band from Salem: The Pride of Tarheelia by Harry H. Hall
This is an outstanding story of a truly remarkable "band of brothers." These were Moravian musicians who signed on to fulfill their patriotic duty by performing music for the boys. They served from the spring of ’62 till their capture in April of ’65. This book has been out of print for years and is now available in an updated version. If you want to know what it was like for a Confederate Band, then this is the book you got to read.
