Battle Hymn of the Republic

“Battle Hymn of the Republic”

A Memorial Day Dedication from Gilbert Watch


The “Battle Hymn of the Republic” was written in 1861 by Julia Ward Howe. It is the best known Civil War song of the Union Army.  Even today, it is one of the most beloved American patriotic Anthems.  It is vital to our American Heritage.


Gilbert Watch honors and thanks every American soldier who died fighting for America and for our freedoms. May we be worthy of their sacrifice.
