The Regular Army O

 

Something for the weekend.  A Broadway tune of 1874, lyrics by Edward Harrigan and music by David Braham, The Regular Army O became extremely popular among the US regular army troops of the last quarter of the nineteenth century.  Troops are shown singing the song in the John Wayne flick Fort Apache (1948) but a video clip of the sequence is apparently not available on the internet, alas.
