Civil War/Blue Grass CD
North Carolina songwriters Barney Rogers and The Grass Cats’ Russell Johnson collaborate on a CD of original songs inspired by the people, places and events of the American Civil War.
As the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War approaches, New Time Records will release the Rogers and Johnson CD When the Bands Played. This unique collection of original songs was inspired by the people places and events of America‘s greatest tragedy and triumph. Dynamic vocals, distinctive melodies, creative arrangements and their solid performances capture the emotion, passion and spirit of the men who fought and the families that were left behind. From the selfless sacrifices of six brothers joining the Confederacy in The Tatham Boys and the lonesome melancholy experienced in When the Bands Played to the anticipation of the wearied veteran returning home in Heading South, Rogers and Johnson relate in song the hardships and hopes of this desperate time.
Commemorative Bowie Knife
The first commemorative piece issued in 43 years for the Battle of Averasboro, a Bowie knife, is now available for purchase at the Averasboro Battlefield Museum. The knife features two scenes engraved into the blade of the knife, one on each side of the knife. One of the scenes is of the first line at the Battle of Averasboro. The second scene is an Arsenal scene in Fayetteville, NC. Each knife is individually numbered and a maximum of 500 of the knives will be produced. The knife is made by the infamous CASE Cutlery Company, well-known maker of fine knives. Mr. Richard Carr, owner of Carr Hardware Company, in Dunn, NC, was instrumental in the project and helped immensely in bringing this project forward. The knives make excellent gifts and should become a treasured heirloom passed down through families for ages.
The cost of the knife is $250 plus NC sales tax. For additional cost, a stand and case may be purchased to display the knife. Those wishing to obtain a low-numbered knife should purchase one at the Averasboro Museum in the near future.
