I have a rather quirky habit of playing war games while listening to music from the period the game is set in - preferably , music sung by the soldiers of the opposing sides. be it southern confederacy music while playing civil war games or German Wehrmacht songs while playing ASL...
So I decided to share a few examples in the hope that some of you will contribute some more interesting ideas.

The album Carolus Rex by the power metal band Sabaton is a great piece of art about a relatively esoteric subject. the first 2 tracks are of particular note. the lyrics describe key events of the 30 years war.

some songs for the confederacy by Ernie Ford (many more on YouTube):

There are tens of songs for each side, done by many artists . a simple search on YouTube will generate them easily. these are valid for other civil war games of course, and For the People is given as an example only.
