Battle Hymn of the Republic

Something for the weekend.  Another in my ongoing series of posts related to Lincoln leading up to his 200th birthday on February 12, 2009.  The Battle Hymn of the Republic by Julia Ward Howe.  Lincoln loved the Battle Hymn of the Republic.  After he first heard it performed, he asked, with tears in his eyes, that it be sung again.  Fittingly, it was sung at his funeral.
