Children Peace Marching - Download
(Thomas Jolin - Civilian)
Tom plays hammered dulcimer, harmonica and guitar.  Tom wrote this tune about 1988 in honor of the Gettysburg children that sang at the 50th anniversary of the Peace Light Memorial in Gettysburg.  Lots of governors were there to hear keynote speaker, Carl Sagen, but it was the children that stole the show. (in the opinion of us parents that had kids in the choir) It was also the 125th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.
