Abstract:"The Sorrows of Lincoln" was developed by Sally Thompson’s fifth-grade students of Martin Luther King Elementary School during the 2016 spring semester as part of the America’s Civil War through Music sessions developed by Hannah Jellen, Scott Schwartz and Marten Stromberg. This is the fifth year the students have helped write a new song building on the knowledge they acquired through weekly history lessons and music performances by Scott, Marten, Hannah Jellen, Aaron Romm, and Ryan Ross. The students’ song this year builds on several of the difficult challenges that Lincoln faced during his presidency as well as highlight some of the things that he either made fun of to keep his spirits up or his son’s youthful exploits which inevitably always made him laugh.
