The Silent Majority Sings: Patriotic Songs of the Sixties (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: The Silent Majority Sings: Patriotic Songs of the Sixties
Author: Jim Neilson
Abstract: This paper examines pro-war and anti-counter culture songs of the 1960s. Cultural memory of the Vietnam War era has ignored these songs. Examining these songs reveals the grievance and confusion and hostility that was generated by opposition to the war, a position that ultimately was exploited politically by Richard Nixon. These songs show the beginnings of a divide that continues to torment American politics and culture.
