Wow[edit]

What a wonderful song. Does anyone have a version where it is sung? --Rockstone35 (talk) 01:56, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Audio[edit]

Please include audio.

Nota Bene, there is a typo in that 1861 sheet music's lyrics[edit]

It has these words:

He governs in the fearful hour Of horrid war, of guides with ease

As the "plain" text in the main article shows, there ought to be only one "of", not two:

He governs in the fearful hour Of horrid war, or guides with ease

.... which makes sense (while the text with the typo is, in turn, a head-scratcher.)

Historical note proposed for inclusion[edit]

Francis Baylies was appointed chargé d'affaires to the Republic of Buenos Aires in the United Provinces of the Río de la Plata (Argentina) just after the USS Lexington raid on the Falkland Islands in 1831; and just before the re-establishment of British rule on the Falklands (1833). Mr. Baylies and family arrived aboard the USS Peacock: both the British line-of-battle ship Plantagenet and H. B. M. frigate Druid complimented her flag by having their musicians play Hail Columbia.[1]:pp.25,26
