New Campaign Songs and Stephen Foster melodies

Some of our recent updates include, Henry Clay election songs posted on the James K. Polk page as well as a bunch of campaign songs from Benjamin Harrison's 1888 campaign.

Moreover, many of the tunes that are on this website are from old Minstrel songs. Boatman Jim, for example is based off of a Stephen Foster song, "Swanee River." We will post a vocal sketch of this song in the near future.
