Thursday, June 9, 2011. Today I am grateful that good music is becoming more a part of my life. For reasons that are not clear to me, I have been thinking of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” ~ Doc Meek

I “lucked out’ and found the history of this song on the internet:

“The story of ‘The Battle Hymn of the Republic’ told from the historical perspective of the great-great-great grandson of the song’s author, Julia Ward Howe”:

Thank you, Julia Ward Howe (and your great, great, great grandson) for this amazing and invigorating song!
