Just thinking about my grandfather the other day. Remembered that he use to listen to Johnny Horton so had me looking for the songs he use to sing. Forgot how many he made dealing with history in different periods. Here are 5 of my favorites:

I have always enjoyed Johnny Horton, a shame he was killed by a drunk driver. I bought his Greatest Hit set at Wal-mart last year.
