Jimerson loves these songs from war time and particularly feels a connection to Abraham Lincoln, who loved the music. The musician has a recording contract with AmeriMusic label and has recorded several CDs that focus on favorite tunes loved by George Washington, Robert E. Lee and Lincoln.

He is working on writing a book about Lincoln’s musical tastes.

“I enjoy history,” he said. “I’m a real history bug.”

But his real passion is music. “The most wonderful thing about what I do is that I get to use my voice, which is my greatest talent,” he said, adding that he still takes vocal lessons.
