Nancy Hunter Chapter NSDAR--Cape Girardeau, Missouri

We Honor Our Revolutionary War Patriots

Their sacrifices led to the many freedoms we enjoy today in the United States of America.

By the rude bridge that arched the flood
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled.
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world.

(From Concord Hymn by Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1837)

Music: “Yankee Doodle” is the most famous of the Revolutionary War songs. Tradition says that the song had its origin when New England Colonial troops joined forces with the British soldiers in the French and Indian War. The British had derogatory lyrics depicting the slovenly appearance of the Colonial troops compared to their own brilliant uniforms. By the time the Revolutionary War occured, the American soldiers had much more complimentary lyrics and the song served as what we would now call their theme song. It has been estimated that there are as many as 190 versions of the song. (Midi file sequenced by Barry Taylor)
