Description (Brief)
The sheet music for the song, “Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!” was arranged by Mr. Albert Leisure and published by the O. Armleder Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. The sheet music served as advertising for the Armleder Company, a carriage and wagon manufacturing company, by changing the last line of the well known tune from “his truth is marching on,” to “the people know where to buy.” The image on the cover shows Uncle Sam filling orders to Armleder from all over the country and the world, while flabbergasted men representing Germany, England, and France look on.
