Sheet music was readily available produced both in America and abroad and the instrumentalists learned the tunes from the notes no radios available to spread the music.
It is estimated that pianos were being produced at a rate of 20, per year and newly devised systems of "installment plans" allowed even the lower-income consumers to acquire them Crawford, p. So now that we know how the song was spread and promoted, let us look a little at the piece itself. Since the song was written long before the war was over and the "tramp" was heard, its words were eerily prophetic or perhaps created a self-fulfilling prophecy. The song begins with our unnamed and, initially, un-affiliated prisoner sitting in his cell, thinking of his family and, in particular, his mother and his "happy home so far away.
Their fondest desire is expressed in the chorus: "Tramp, tramp, tramp, the boys are marching; Cheer up, comrades, they will come.

And beneath the starry flag we shall breathe the air again of the free land in our own beloved home" Silverman, p. The Southern version alters the chorus just a bit, substituting ". The second verse of the original song talks of the experience in battle: in spite of the Rebels' "fiercest charge" and that they "swept us off a hundred men or more," the boys in blue came through and were successful in beating them back, adding the cry of victory.
The Southern version essentially reverses the charge and victory. Both sides end up with prisoners taken, however, where the inmates wait and wait to hear the tramp of the comrades coming to rescue them Silverman, p. The Southern version is three verses longer than the original piece by Root perhaps they had more to be mournful about? The Northern version does not identify what battle is being referenced, but the Southern version is more specific in the skirmish details, providing the historian to track down the referenced battle or at least some options for it.
I wish to add an aside here. As I mentioned earlier, Root said he wrote this piece to answer the queries of those left at home who were wondering about their loved ones. It seems to me that, when I read these lyrics of feelings of despair and homesickness, not to mention physical deprivation, that if I were one of those left at home, I would not be at all comforted.
In fact, I believe it would give me all the more to worry about. But the day did come and the door was opened. As sequels are written today for movies and books that have left the consumer wondering "then what?
Now, this version certainly did have the power to raise the spirits of those who waited to welcome their soldier-boys home Silber, Songs , p. Was your ancestor one of those who spent time behind those iron doors? If so, whether he survived or not, this song, then, is part of your heritage.
And, if he survived, so is the subsequent version a part of your family history. So many songs of this time period dealt with the realities of death and dying that to find some that, while speaking of the event, also emphasize the hope, purpose, and values of those who went forth ready to sacrifice it all for their ideals, is a welcome change of pace.
