“Battle Hymn of the Republic” or “Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory” was written by Julia Ward Howe during the first year of the American Civil War. Like many Folk songs of the time, the music was appropriated from another classic folk song, “John Brown’s Body”.
The tune went on to become one of the most iconic Patriotic songs in the American Lexicon and even abroad.
