I Didn't Raise My Boy to be a Soldier - the first anti-war hit record

•, by sharpsteve
 Released in 1915, I Didn't Raise My Son to be a Soldier, sung here by the Peerless Quartet, was the first commercially successful anti-war record and featured prominently in the American anti-war movement opposing US entry in the first world war. The song was revived in the 1960s in opposition to the US war in Vietnam.
