Songfacts®:

  • The Delaware State Song started life as a poem. George Beswick Hynson published a number of works on stammering and stuttering, but he also wrote Our Delaware. It was published in 1906, and was set to music by Will. M.S. Brown, and published by Brown & Edwards of Wilmington, Delaware at 40c.

    In 1925 it was adopted as the State Song, and an additional verse was grafted on for the 1976 bicentennial celebrations by Donn Devine, a member of the Delaware Bar. >>
