Misc. Comments

We Are Coming, Father Abra'am was a poem written by James S. Gibbons in response to a call by Abraham Lincoln for volunteers to fight the Civil War. According to Wikipedia, it was set to music by at least 8 composers. In an attempt to trace which one Getze arranged, the following have been compared - Stephen Foster, William Bryant Cullen, Augustus Cull, Ferdinand Mayer, Patrick Sarsfield Gilmore (his is close to this but not exactly the same), I.B. Irving, Charles Grobe, George R. Poulton. In the end, the one that matches this is by "A Volunteer", with the words incorrectly attributed to "Robert Morris", published 1862, Cleveland, Brainard & Co. (available for download at Library of Congress).
