A Little Monday Music - "The Bonnie Blue Flag"

Starting The Week off on a High Note

  • I decided to try and start the new week off on a positive high note. But I suspect things will turn into crap soon enough.

Hurrah! Hurrah!
For Southern rights, hurrah!
Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

I am feeling in a Southern mood today if for no other reason but to piss off the Leftist filth trying to Memory-Hole American history.

Full Disclosure - My family fought for the Union. One was shot at Gettysburg. Personally I think most of the Southern Generals and political hacks should have been hung for treason because they violated their sworn oaths to uphold the Constitution.

But here we are today and "Bonnie Blue Flag" is a catchy tune.

"The Bonnie Blue Flag", also known as "We Are a Band of Brothers", is an 1861 marching song associated with the Confederate States of America. The words were written by the entertainer Harry McCarthy, with the melody taken from the song "The Irish Jaunting Car". 
The song's title refers to the unofficial first flag of the Confederacy, the Bonnie Blue Flag. The left flag on the sheet-music is the Bonnie Blue Flag.
The song was premiered by lyricist Harry McCarthy during a concert in Jackson, Mississippi, in the spring of 1861 and performed again in September of that same year at the New Orleans Academy of Music for the First Texas Volunteer Infantry regiment mustering in celebration.
The New Orleans music publishing house of A.E. Blackmar issued six editions of "The Bonnie Blue Flag" between 1861 and 1864 along with three additional arrangements.
