茱莉雅沃尔得豪威 (Julia Ward Howe) 获选进入美国艺术文学院

豪威于1819年出生在纽约市,她和同样是社会改革主义者的先生萨慕尔.格里得利.豪威 (Samuels Gridley Howe) 都相当支持废奴运动。为了要让大众听到他们的声音,他们在1840年代还编辑出版了一份废奴报纸,叫做自治报 (Commonwealth) 。因为他们的努力,西元1861年,这对夫妇被邀请到华盛顿特区检视联邦军队在内战中的「第一次奔牛之战」 (First Battle of Bull Run) 的意见与看法。豪威太太因为看到这场真正的战争,不久后就就写下「共和国战歌」

Born in New York City in 1819, Howe, and her husband, social activist Samuel Gridley Howe, embraced the abolitionist (freedom from slavery) movement. In order to get their word out, they edited an abolitionist newspaper called the Commonwealth during the 1840s. Because of their work, the couple was invited to Washington, D.C., to review the attitudes of Union troops after the First Battle of Bull Run in the Civil War in 1861. Mrs. Howe wrote her "Battle Hymn" soon after, inspired by seeing a real battle.
