Members of the Johnson County Children’s Choir perform a musical piece, “Yankee Doodle” during the Fourth of July celebration on the Ralph Stout Park stage in Mountain City TN. The song was appropriately performed as it is often sung patriotically in the United States. While the song dates to before the Seven Years’ War and the American Revolution (1775–83), the melody is reportedly thought to be much older than both the lyrics and the subject, goingback to folk songs of Medieval Europe.
