Battle Hymn of the Republic by Julia W. Hower and William Steffe
Arranged for Flute and Piano by Wayne Fritchie

The tune of this famous piece was written around 1856 by William Steffe, and a different set of lyrics that was sung as a campfire spiritual.  The words of this piece were written by Julia Ward Howe in 1861, and published on the front page of The Atlantic Monthly in February 1862.  A nice addition in a patriotic concert, the flute carries the melody throughout the piece.
