The Story of the Battle Hymn of the Republic

As might be expected, you can thank a woman.

"Why is it that young men must go forth to die with such obscenities on their lips, and with filth for their battle hymn?"

Long, but worth listening to. Performed by the United States Air Force Marching Band and Singing Sargeants, from the album "I Am an American."
