We'll tell you how local songwriters are busy commemorating the war of 1812 in song.
The words to that song were penned by an American soldier nearly 200 years ago during the war of 1812. Imagine what he would've thought knowing one day the words in his letter would be set to music and put on a Cd. That's exactly what's happened.
"Reflections of 1812" is a musical compilation Cd created by local songwriters to
commemorate the bi-centennial of the battle along our border.Two of those songwriters are Dale Butler and Glen MacNeil. They've each written songs inspired by the events of the war. Glen MacNeil and Dale Butler join me in the studio.
