Marvelous Music Monday for July 2, 2012: My Country, 'Tis of Thee

'Tis the week of our Independence Day
Three Cheers for the Red, White, and Blue!
I have a few Patriotic Songs to share for this week.
Here is a song that we started off each day with in my Kindergarten class at First Lutheran School in Monrovia, California.
My Country, 'Tis of Thee
This anthem was written by Samuel Francis Smith and based upon the melody of God Save the Queen.

This next song was in the running for our National Anthem.
Columbia, Gem of the Ocean

From the Disney movie, Johnny Tremain
Son's of Liberty
This is the end of the movie, right after the Boston Tea Party, a great moment in our American history.

I have ancestors that go back to before the Revolution, and some that came from Mexico, but I am, and always will be an American first.  I love my country, and thank so much those terrific men throughout our history who pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor for our country.
