Lake Land’s Caldwell named Illinois Road Scholar

Lake Land College music instructor, Nancy Caldwell has been selected as an Illinois Road Scholar by the Illinois Humanities Council (IHC) for the 2013-2014 school year. 

As part of the IHC Road Scholars Speakers Bureau, Caldwell will present “A Soundtrack for Wartime: Songs of the Civil War” to audiences across Illinois. 

During the presentation, participants will hear examples of Civil War songs and discuss their specific appeal to Americans during the war and beyond.

According to Caldwell, music was an important emotional outlet during the war and she developed the presentation to commemorate its sesquicentennial.

“Songs rallied the troops, passed the time for encamped soldiers, captured the drama of military campaigns, and most of all, created a feeling of inclusion” explained Caldwell. “People singing songs about the Civil War understood that others shared their worry and pain, and this was a source of comfort.”

The 2013-2014 IHC Road Scholar schedule runs from Nov. 1, 2013 – Oct. 31, 2014.
