Abstract
This presentation is almost entirely a photographic collection of patriotic sheet music, mostly American, composed and published during periods of war to "rally the nation." Photos of the sheet music are drawn in part from the personal collection of the professor and from sources available openly online. The presentation includes a brief history of certain classic songs, such as "God Bless America," written by Irving Berlin, a Russian-Jewish immigrant from Siberia, when he was in the U.S. Army during World War I. Examples of military-related sheet music with other objectives are divided by category: music as tribute (to various leaders); music to protest war and promote peace; and recent expressions of patriotism and military support. The presentation is for educational purposes only. The presentation should not be used commercially.
