Biographical Note

Rev. William Eleazar Barton (1861-1930) The Rev. William Eleazar Barton (1861-1930) was one of the early twentieth century's most prominent writers and lecturers on the life of Abraham Lincoln. Born in Sublette, Illinois, in the same year Lincoln assumed the presidency, Barton grew up in an environment heavily influenced by reverence for Lincoln. After pursuing undergraduate studies at Berea College in Kentucky, Barton earned his divinity degree from the Oberlin Theological Seminary in 1890. He served parishes in Tennessee, Ohio, and Massachusetts before becoming the pastor of the First Congregational Church of Oak Park, Illinois, a position he held until his retirement in 1924. Four years later, Barton accepted an appointment as lecturer at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee, where he also organized and served as pastor of the Collegeside Congregational Church.

Barton's work as a writer produced a number of denominational manuals for church organization and a series of books presenting the wisdom and parables of a character he named Safed the Sage. For the last ten years of his life, however, Barton was best known to the public as a prolific author and lecturer on Abraham Lincoln. His publications about Lincoln included The Soul of Abraham Lincoln (1920), The Paternity of Abraham Lincoln (1920), The Life of Abraham Lincoln (1925), The Great and Good Man (1927), The Women Lincoln Loved (1927), and The Lincoln of the Biographers (1930).

In the course of compiling material for his writings and talks, Barton visited Lincoln sites in Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois; interviewed surviving Lincoln relatives and acquaintances; and traveled as far as California and England to collect information and conduct genealogical research on the ancestry of the Lincoln family. While acquiring a large collection of books, periodicals, pamphlets, manuscripts, and ephemera related to Lincoln and the Civil War era, Barton also purchased privately or at auction historical materials amassed by other Lincoln collectors such as John E. Burton and Osborn H. Oldroyd.

Scope Note

The Lincoln Collection Sheet Music has been arranged into four series: Series I, Civil War Era Sheet Music, Series II, Lincoln Sheet Music, and Series III, Nineteenth Century American Sheet Music, and Series IV, Civil War Song Sheets. The sheet music in these various series formed part of William E. Barton’s extensive collection of Lincolniana. Little is known about the origin of the music but some were originally inventoried and reviewed against standard resources.

Series I, Civil War Era Sheet Music, consists of sheet music materials which fall under the categorical theme of Civil War Era. It is arranged alphabetically by lyricist or composer. This series is mainly comprised of soldier and funeral marches, but also housed here are scores that commemorate battles and fallen soldiers such as E.E. Ellsworth.

Series II, Lincoln Sheet Music, consists of memorial songs, dirges, and funeral marches in sorrow for the loss of Abraham Lincoln. In this series are also songs in support of Lincoln and the conquest of the Civil War and those in general commemoration to his life as chief of the nation. The reference for this collection: Warren, Louis A. Lincoln Sheet Music. Check List. Fort Wayne, Ind. Lincolniana Publishers. 1940.

Series III: Nineteenth Century American Sheet Music contains material which offer a general survey of popular music from 1851-1878. The types of musical compositions represented here include polkas, mazurkas, schottisches, quicksteps, waltzes, marches, and practice pieces for the piano and piano-forte with variations provide. Also featured here at the end of the collection are a number of musical pieces from the composer Stephen C. Foster; among them is one of his most notable pieces titled “Beautiful Dreamer.”

Series IV, Civil War Song Sheets, contains song sheets with the lyrics of pieces encouraging the support of the Union and dirges in memorial of Lincoln’s death. They are arranged and described according to the entry in: WOLF, Edwin, 2nd. American Song Sheets, Slip Ballads, and Poetical Broadsides 1850-1870. A catalogue of the Collection of the Library Company of Philadelphia. Philadelphia: The Library Company of Philadelphia. 1963.
