The Battle Hymn of the Republic is most often considered to be

the unofficial battle hymn of the Civil War. It was written by

Julia Ward Howe as a marching song for the Union army. Over the

years it came to be sung by blacks in the south as well due to its

strong reference to slavery. For more information you might want to
