• In 1857, James Lord Pierpont was the music director at a Savannah, Georgia church when he composed a happy little winter tune he entitled “One-Horse Open Sleigh,” later known as “Jingle Bells.” Just a few years later, he was composing “We Conquer or Die” and “Strike for the South,” Civil War marching songs. Pierpont wasn’t a native Southerner, and was in fact the son of a staunch abolitionist from Boston.

• “Jingle Bells” was used as a part of a practical joke played by Gemini 6 astronauts Wally Services, Inc. Schirra and Tom Stafford during their DecemCarpet Cleaning • Carpet ber, 1965 spaceflight.
