When Johnny Comes Marching Home (Veterans Day)

Words & Music by Patrick Sarsfield Gilmore, 1863, band master of the Union Armies. First sung during the Civil War and again with frequency during the Spanish-American War. A celebratory lyric honoring the returning war heroes stands out in stark contrast to the most mournfully melancholy of tunes.
