In a clear sign how things were beginning to go, and an early introduction to what would be a massive movement in the American public supporting the Great War and shaming those who didn't, the song America Here's My Boy was copyrighted on this day and very soon released:
This came, of course, just before the US entered the war, but it would end up being an early World War One American hit.
I wouldn't rate it as great, but then music of this era. . . .
Anyhow, it was a bit of a reaction to I Didn't Raise My Boy To Be A Soldier.
Band sound similar to the one above?
It's the same one.
At any rate, I doubt America Here's My Boy "expressed the sentiment of every American mother." I learned the year prior to my own mother's death that she worried that war would break out the entire time I was in the National Guard.
