The Guerrillero (Guitar & Voice)
A Song of the War - A 19th Century American Anti-War Song
Anti-war songs have always existed as long as there was war. In American history, most wars (excluding the American Revolution, and to some extent the Second World War) have been subject to scrutiny by its citizens. This war was scrutinized by many who opposed the acquisition of Texas, who had declared its independence from Mexico.
1. Mexico never really acknowledged the secession of Texas.
2. Mexico was claiming different borderlines. Mexico wanted the area up to the Nueces River, near present-day Corpus Cristi, and Texas (and the Americans) were claiming the Rio Grande.
On April 24, 1846, Mexican troops attacked American troops in that disputed area, and this was the catalyst that ended in the United States declaring was on Mexico.
This tune was written by a unknown soldier in a training camp.
