Tenting On The Old Campground

From Plank Road Publishing

arr. Mike Wilson

Our nation was less than one hundred years old when the first shot rang out in the War Between the States. April 12th, 1861 marks the beginning of the Civil War. In the year 1863, Walter Kittredge, a professional songwriter/performer at the time, penned the well-known "Tenting On The Old Campground." He was preparing to join the Union army, and wanted to present a song to the boys in blue. Though Kittredge was a northerner, his lyrics applied equally to soldiers on both sides of the lines. One could imagine the sense of encouragement and unity in knowing "we're all in this together." The lyrics, "We are tired of war on the old campground," pretty much sum up the sentiment of the song and, sadly, still ring true today.
