Granville Automatic, a band with roots in Atlanta, is releasing its collection of songs inspired by Civil War battles, part of a related project to film videos of the songs on battlefields across the nation.
The band has filmed videos of the songs in the places that inspired them, and has plans to shoot more videos in Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia.
Every second of battle in the American Civil War was filled with stories, many of which have gone untold, band member Elizabeth Elkins said.
The band’s goal is to capture the immense emotional and human imprints the war left not only on soldiers, but their loved ones, she said. Lanterns at Horseshoe Ridge, for instance, recounts the night when mothers and daughters of soldiers used lanterns to search for their dead or dying loved ones near Chattanooga, Tennessee, in 1863.
