|Yesterday I heard a short composition for solo piano, a delightful fast showpiece. Didn't catch its title.
The composer was a slave born in Georgia. He was a musical prodigy. Before the Civil War, he earned $100,000. But of course the money wasn't his.
He was called Blind Tom or Blind Tom Fool. His real name was Thomas Wiggin.
What does this have to do with the Civil War?
