raredance Abe Lincoln's Musical Campaign (15) RE: Abe Lincoln's Musical Campaign 06 Apr 02


Interesting site. One puzzlement. The web site lists Robert Morris as author of We Are Coming Father Abraham, but at least 4 authors of books of Civil War era songs that I have say the poet was John Sloan Gibbons. I have no way to determine which is correct. Maybe Morris gets credit for changing the 300,000 in the original to 600,000.
