Copy From One, It's Plagiarism;

copy from two, it's research.
-Wilson Mizner

I am amazed to learn from my stats that the most requested post of mine is the one on the song The Battle Of New Orleans. And I've noticed that the interest in that post always increases when school is in session. No one out there is "borrowing it" for a school paper, are they? As you can see it was written in 2004, which means your chances of getting caught are pretty good. Do the research, OK? It's safer.

Anyway, if you are going to cheat at least cheat big like Mizner brothers did. Click on the Wilson Mizner link above to find out what I am talking about. They have been dead over seventy years and people are still talking about them.

Please, who sang the song in the 60's?
Can hear the melody and his voice but his name.

A guy named Johnny Horton.   He also recorded a song about the sinking of the WWII German warship the Bismarck.
