The Battle Hymn of the Republic, Sheet Music Postcard

Battle Hymn of the Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord:
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

Wow! What an amazing find! I love these classic postcards and it makes me wonder just how much it cost for postcard printing back then when compared to today’s costs. And this card is still in such great condition, too! Thanks for sharing!
