Just think, everyone involved in making the music and recording it is dead- most likely more than 100 years ago.

And think, in that time period most of the west was just beginning to be settled- Theodore Roosevelt was just a shiny-faced 30 year old at the time.

The worlds' first automobile was only in production for two years- and it would be 30 more before they went into mass production.

"Dracula" had not been written yet- not until 1897.

Britain was an empire stretching from hemisphere to hemisphere- the American Civil War was still part of living memory.

The United States only had 38 states at the time (4 more would be admitted just the next year.)

The drummer to the furthest left looks pretty young. Checking a roster of the 93rd, the youngest drummer or musician might have been William Baker. Here is what it says about the boy:
BAKER, WILLIAM.—Age , 14 years. Enlisted at Warrenton Junction, Va. , to serve three years, and mustered in as drummer, Co. E , August 10, 1863; deserted, March 20, 1864, at Brandy Station, Va.
From that, it looks like the boy joined the regiment just over a month after it fought at Gettysburg and shortly before this picture was taken (it was probably taken in August 1863).
Looking at the roster, I see a couple musicians who were discharged with disability on June 24, 1862, about a week before the Seven Days Before Richmond battles, but the only drummers or musicians who were killed or wounded seemed to have reenlisted as privates first.

General William T. Sherman on horseback at Federal Fort No. 7, ca. November, 1864

16645506943_d82b7136d7_k.jpg
 

Original

03628r.jpg

Photograph of the War in the West. These photographs are of Sherman in Atlanta, September-November, 1864. After three and a half months of incessant maneuvering and much hard fighting, Sherman forced Hood to abandon the munitions center of the Confederacy. Sherman remained there, resting his war-worn men and accumulating supplies, for nearly two and a half months. During the occupation, George N. Barnard, official photographer of the Chief Engineer's Office, made the best documentary record of the war in the West; but much of what he photographed was destroyed in the fire that spread from the military facilities blown up at Sherman's departure on November 15.
