 About the Civil War Band Collection: 1st Brigade Band of Brodhead, Wisconsin
Because most band music was unpublished, especially as band arrangements, this type of item represents the way that band music circulated among bandleaders, who would then copy out the parts for their own band, or have the players copy out their parts, and then send the packet to the next person on the list.
Most of the carte-de-visite images appear to date from a period after the war, since the men appear to have aged from the Chicago Public Library image that appears on the home page of this collection, which likely represents the band at the time of their enlistment as the 1st Brigade Band in 1864.
The 1st Brigade Band was organized in 1964, by Fred Menkovic, a Milwaukee instrument collector, as a result of the efforts of citizens of Galena, Illinois, to reconstruct Gen. Grant's homecoming celebration in 1865.

 Review of Band of Brothers
The World War II film has never really left Hollywood’s radar, except for a brief hiatus immediately after the war when the subject was considered “box office poison” (especially by war-weary exhibitors) and the genre all but disappeared.
Rationalization came much easier during “the Good War,” and thus the WWII film also became a moral and thematic standard against which all of the other war films (and other wars) would be gauged—and against which they fail to measure up.
As World War II steadily recedes in terms of collective memory and lived experience, and as history inexorably gives way to mythology, the essential form and function of the WWII film have begun to take on a life of their own.
