Stirring words indeed! This brought the history books back to my head -- in living color. ;)

Good take on the topic.
I didn't know the history behind this beautiful song. Thanks for a well written and interesting article.
This was an interesting history lesson. I never knew that song was written for the Civil War. Now I have the song stuck in my head. :)
