Frank and Virginia Williams
This is a lyric sheet for a song titled "Glory Hally, Hallelujah! or the John Brown Song" now known by the title "John Brown's Body", a United States marching song about the abolitionist John Brown. The lyrics are surrounded by United States Flag imagery and the United States shield. The publisher is identified at the bottom of the sheet. This fragile broadside was found tipped in between pages 204-205 of volume two of Abraham Lincoln : A History by John G. Nicolay and John Hay.
