I'm doing an end of the year project for APUSH where I make a music video with pictures and songs with subtitles. The pictures and songs have to correlate. I can choose any time period. I was thinking of starting from the conflicts of Indians and white men (iron maiden - run to the hills), then move on from there to about 1960's/1950's....

I know it may be a lot to ask of you guys, but I really need help finding some good songs. So, know any good songs based on American history?

edit: 1600's, 1700's, 1800's, 1900's --- all time periods I will probably have to go through. (puritans to jazz musicians, lol)

I didn't know they had a history.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Not 1950, but listen to Iced Earth's album "The Glorious Burden", in particular the Gettysburg trilogy.
So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world.

One of the greatest if not the greatest ballad of all time.

Classic telling of one's experience in WWII.

How about a song called "Do Your Own Homework, TS!"?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
