Patriotic Songs of America

Music draws people together, creating a sense of unity and togetherness. Perhaps it is no surprise that patriotic music has proven to be so popular in the United States. As a young country made up of immigrants from around the world, songs celebrating America have served as a way for everyone to come together as one.

Many of the patriotic songs that have become beloved standards were first sung during times of war, when the need for strength, bravery, and pride was so important in the ongoing struggle. From the first years of the country’s battle for independence through to the attacks on September 11, 2001, Americans have sung songs that honor the spirit and majestic beauty that has made the country so great.

Flag Waving

The American flag has proven to be a great source of inspiration for song writers throughout the years. From the hope of a still-waving flag to the emotions tied up in a veteran’s old, battered flag, it is a symbol that stirs people’s hearts.

During the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key, a lawyer and poet, was inspired to write a poem titled “Defence of Fort McHenry” after seeing the Chesapeake Bay fort come under British attack. Despite the heavy bombardment, the American forces were victorious in the battle and Key was inspired by the fierce rocket and bomb attack, as well as the sight of the flag flying at the end of the battle.

Although his words were original, the lyrics were set to the music of an existing song, called “The Anacreontic Song”, written by John Stafford Smith, an English composer. The new version of the song soon gained in popularity and became known as “The Star-Spangled Banner”. However, it didn’t become the national anthem until as late as March 3, 1931. Until that point, the U.S. had been without an official national anthem.

Another popular patriotic song dedicated to the flag is George M. Cohan’s song, “You’re a Grand Old Flag”, from his 1906 musical,George Washington, Jr. The rousing song became an immediate success. Cohan was inspired to write the song after meeting a Civil War veteran who was holding a worn but carefully folded flag. The man saw Cohan looking at the flag and said, “She’s a grand old rag.”

Majestic Mountains

Many of America’s patriotic songs pay homage to the beauty and bounty of this great nation. From coast to coast, America is home to everything from white, sandy beaches to soaring mountain peaks. One song that honors the beauty and brotherhood of the country is “America the Beautiful”. The song was written first as a poem in 1893 by Katherine Lee Bates, before eventually being set to music. Bates was an English literature professor at Wellesley College and had taken a trip to Pike’s Peak, Colorado, where she had taken in the beauty of the open skies above the fertile land.

Over the years, the words were sung to a variety of tunes, including “Auld Lang Syne”, but the music that gained the most popularity was written by an organist and choirmaster called Samuel Augustus Ward. A competition was held in 1926 to find a definitive piece of music for the words, but nothing was found that topped Ward’s music.

Although many of the nation’s great patriotic songs have early origins, there are still songs being written in modern times. Some still have to face the test of time, but one of that has stood up to the challenge is Woody Guthrie’s classic folk song, “This Land Is Your Land”. Written in 1944, the song is a celebration of the freedoms of the land and the diversity of its people.

The variety of patriotic songs is as diverse as the people who sing them, but the one thing that ties them all together is the appreciation of the land that has brought them together. Through good times and bad, patriotic Americans can quickly come together just by humming a few bars of any of these beloved songs.
