"Battle Cry of Freedom" is a song written
in 1862 by American composer George Frederick Root (1825–1895) during
the American Civil War. A patriotic song advocating
the cause of the Union, it became so popular that composer
H. L. Schreiner and lyricist W. H. Barnes adapted it for the Confederate States of America. The Union
version was used as the campaign song for the Lincoln-Johnson
ticket in the 1864 presidential election.
Composed in haste in a single day in response to President
Abraham Lincoln's July 1862 call for 300,000 volunteers to fill the shrinking
ranks of the Union Army, the song was first performed on July 24 and again on
July 26 at a massive war rally. Composer-lyricist George F. Root recalled years
later, "From there the song went into the army, and the testimony in
regard to its use in the camp and on the march, and even on the field of
battle, from soldiers and officers, up to the good President himself, made me
thankful that if I could not shoulder a musket in defense of my country I could
serve her in this way."
