GUEST,Jan Origins: history of Down by the Riverside (61* d) RE: Origins: history of Down by the Riverside 24 Oct 07


This is a fabulous resource. I've gotten some valuable information for my school choir. We're singing "Down By the Riverside" at our Remembrance Day Ceremony, and I wanted to be able to tell them a bit about the origins of the "ain't gonna study war no more" part and how it related to slavery. thanks to all who contributed!
