John Brown’s Body

Something for weekend.  A favorite marching song of the Union troops in the early months of the Civil War, before the tune became attached to the Battle Hymn of the Republic.  That this song was sung in the Civil War that John Brown did so much to ignite, I am sure pleased his grim spirit to no end.
