Excerpt from Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!: The Story of "John Brown's Body" And "Battle Hymn of the Republic" Set to the easy swing of a simple Old Methodist air, slightly jazzed up, which was well known to the great mass of church-going people, with a beat that made it an almost perfect marching tune, the doggerel verses of the original com position contained all the elements of simplicity and sentiment. There was a touch of humor, and, all in all, it had everything essential to reflect the patriotic frenzy Of the early months of the war. Once launched, the john Brown song rolled on like a great snowball, gaining favor and at the same time collecting some scores of variant lyrics set to the same metrical measure. The greatest of these julia Ward Howe's Battle Hymn of the Republic has worn well through the years as a minor national anthem. That is the john Brown song in its glorified form.
