Meals in our scout reservation dining hall are begun with the singing of a
grace and end with a rousing rendition of "Trail the Eagle". A newbie,
noting that the tune is the same as "On Wisconsin" asked the obvious
question: when the songs were written, why scouting chose a fight song from
a Big Ten power, etc. I couldn't find anything in my limited library.
Anyone have the history on this??
