African-American Spiritual From Ken Burns “The Civil War” By Bernice Johnson Reagon-
The refrain of “soldiers of the cross” is a reminder of both the devotion to God and the devotion to fight for freedom that is at the heart of many African-American spirituals from the period of the Civil War. Bernice Johnson Reagon, and her a cappella group have created a gem.
This African-American spiritual has become widely known for its use as a gospel hymn and popular song of worship. From the landmark documentary The Civil War by Ken Burns. His treatment of the issue of slavery during the ante-bellum South and the Civil War featured this song as one of the themes.
Its beautiful melody is exquisitely captured in this a cappella rendition: a format that is true to its roots as a song sung by slaves during the long hours of labor.
