Re: The Greatest Depression Community Diary
Very cool story re how the Battle Hymn if the Republic, C1oudfire! It is a good thing Howe had enough sense to write down the lyrics before they got lost in sleep!
Ok, let me throw in a thread-related tidbit to stay legit: Then I was a kid, I remember my mom telling stories about how, during the depression, her dad (my grandfather) used to make "lemonade" from sumac. I’ve never tried it, but Sumac grows wild around here, so it would be easily available. I just did a search and found this link to a recipe for it at: http://www.natureskills.com/lemonade_recipe.html .
