Abraham, Our Abraham

AIR: "Maryland, My Maryland"

"Abraham, Our Abraham" is dedicated to Abraham Lincoln as a leader; he is there to do the public bidding and will lead the Union to victory. The German tune, O Tannenbaum, which was used during the Civil War for the song "Maryland, My Maryland", was well known and easy for large numbers of people to sing in groups. The tune would be used for the remainder of the 19th century along with some of the verbiage in the song-- America is referred to by its poetic name "Columbia."
