Did you know that in 1872. . . .

Did you know that the year I was crafted
(1872) as a Square Grand Piano. . .

Julia Ward Howe wrote "Appeal to Womanhood Throughout The World", which proclaimed the first Mothers Day in 1872 (June 2) as an anti war protest.. . . . . A social activist and poet, she penned the words to "The Battle Hymn of The Republic," which several years earlier, was a very popular song during the American Civil War.

I would be crafted as a piano a few years after the American Civil War
