Songs of america
by Jon Meacham and Tim McGraw
Really cool read. This book traces back to the formational years of our great country. It weaves a thread between the major social and political movements and the songs/music inspired by the times. It would be irresponsible not to mention that some of the times may have also been inspired by the songs.
From the Revolutionary era to current day, Songs of America highlights those connections and the deep influence that music has had, and continues to have, on our society.
Upon completing this book, I feel a little extra proud to be an American, and I am consumed with an overwhelming sense of Patriotism.
If you are a patriot, or a connoisseur of either American history or music, this book is for you. Check out Day 136 for some additional thoughts on Patriotism.
