Battle Cry of Freedom

George F. Root composed this northern Civil War song in 1862. My arrangement was inspired by the piano playing of Jacqueline Schwab in Ken Burns' Civil War series.

Very nice! Your arrangement is better than mine. I drew my inspiration from exactly the same place, then started with suggested tab from the Yet Another Digital Tradition site.

What a nice rendition of such a moving song.  I learned a fingerstyle version of this from Neal Hellman but it's not all that different than yours.  Nice playing!

This is, perhaps, my favorite marching song of the Civil War. Thanks, John, for your heartfelt version!
