Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Douglas Jimerson is an American singer known for his interpretation of Civil War songs. He was featured in 7 songs in the United States Academic Decathlon's Music of the Civil War Era. He is widely renowned for his large, burly appearance and impressive beard. He sings in the tenor range and rarely has been known to sing in falsetto. His recent performance entitled "Jimerson Live at the Kennedy Center" was attended by thousands. He sang 12 of his most popular songs composed by a variety of artists. His performance was later compiled into an album released in 2004 by AmeriMusic. He has recorded dozens of patriotic tunes, and his renditions have found a broader public through licensing on major venues; for example, his production of "Hail to the Chief" on his "God Bless America" CD was licensed and used in the 2009 Broadway play "You're Welcome America - A Final Night with George W.
