Patriotic Music in America

America’s patriotic music reflects the heart and soul of this great country we call home.

Archibald M Willard’s "Yankee Doodle," or the "Spirit of ‘76," is one of the most beloved patriotic paintings in America. While Willard originally sought to create a humorous depiction of parade musicians for the Revolutionary War’s centennial, he ultimately moved his subjects to the battlefield, and created this classic representation of American valor.
