This Week in the Civil War

Sep 26, 1863
In the final years of the Civil War, one song became popular in both the North and the South: “When Johnny Comes Marching Home.” The song, composed by Boston’s beloved bandleader Patrick S. Gilmore, was a rousing march that anticipated the celebration at the end of the war. Gilmore premiered “When Johnny Comes Marching” at a Boston concert on September 26, 1863. Still well known today, the song remains deeply evocative of the period.
