Civil War History Via The Quiet Hounds

As the Sesquicentennial commemorations of key Civil War events continue, one of the best tributes to the lives lost comes from Atlanta band Quiet Hounds. Released in late fall 2012, the video for the song “Beacon Sun” was directed by Scott Lansing and shot in part at the Andersonville National Historic Site, which was where the Camp Sumter military prison was located. More than 45,000 Union soldiers were confined there during the 14-month period it existed and more than 13,000 of those men died there. Of the song and the video, the Quiet Hounds’ camp told Bearings Guide, “…the notion of paying tribute to those lost an Andersonville became our focus—our spiritual mission.”
