Thread Name: What is a Grange Song?
Subject: RE: What is a Grange Song?
Here I sit looking at a very decrepit song book entitled Grange Melodies, National Grange of Patrons of Husbandry, Granges of the United States. The granges are still quite alive and well here in Vermont. The Eastern Star does a lot of fund raising for causes, some of which have been disability-related, so I've come to know them that way. The song book has titles such as: Beautiful Grange, Because he joined the Grange, Tis Better to Stay on the Farm, and more. The copyright is 1891 The song you mentioned is not in it, alass, but the Grange Hymn is.
