Thread Name: What is a Grange Song?
Subject: RE: What is a Grange Song?
Didn't see anything on that, Lucius. And thanks for the welcome, Alison. I live in the wilds o'Wyoming and have lived in the West and Southwest all my life. The Grange has been a fact of life, sort of subcutaneously because none of my folks were farmers. In Oklahoma, land of my upbringing, the farmers formed a powerful union that actually helped create the state constitution -- although they resisted like crazy the legislation that would put kids in school and not allow them to work 12 hour days! I mean, progressivism has its limits, fer gawdsakes.

I've always wished I had a time machine so I could go back and listen to the songs they were sining at their organizational meetings...
