U.S. History Honors Dec. 10, 2007 1. Civil War: “When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again” Written in 1863 by Patrick Gilmore, this popular song of the Civil War expresses longing for the return of those fighting in the war. Gilmore wrote the song for his sister Annie as she waited for her fiancé, Union Captain John O’Rourke, from the Civil War. When Johnny comes marching home again, Hurrah! Hurrah! We'll give him a hearty welcome then Hurrah! Hurrah! The men will cheer and the boys will shout The ladies they will all turn out And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home. The old church bell will peal with joy Hurrah! Hurrah! To welcome home our darling boy, Hurrah! Hurrah! The village lads and lassies say With roses they will strew the way, And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home. Get ready for the Jubilee, Hurrah! Hurrah! We'll give the hero three times three, Hurrah! Hurrah! The laurel wreath is ready now To place upon his loyal brow And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home. 2. World War I:
