George Frederick Root, aka G. Friedrich Wurzel, was born in Sheffield, MA on 30 August 1820, and died, at the age of 74, on Bailey's Island, ME on 6 August 1895. He published over 500 pieces of music from 1848 until 1896. He used his German surname Wurzel, the English equivalent of Root, for his minstrel songs. He had two brothers, Ebenezer Towner Root and William A. Root; and five sisters, among whom were Francis A. Root (who played and taught piano, sang and gave vocal instruction) and the youngest was Fannie Root. He married Mary Olive Woodman in August 1845 and they had two sons, Frederick Woodman Root and Charles Root, and four daughters: [Mrs.] Clara Louise Root [Burnham] (who collaborated on several cantatas with him); Grace Woodman Root, Mary "May" Olive Root, (a mezzo-soprano), and Helen "Nellie" Clara Root (a contralto). His father, Frederic Ferdinand Root, died in 1866 and his mother, Sarah Flint, lived from 1796-1881, dying at the age of 85. For fuller biographical info, see The Story of a Musical Life: An Autobiography by Geo. F. Root (Cincinnati: The John Church Co., 1891; reprinted by AMS Press, Inc, New York, NY in 1973, ISBN 0-404- 07205-4).

For two excellent dissertations about Root, see: George Frederick Root, Pioneer Music Educator: His Contributions to Mass Instruction in Music (1971) by Mazie Pauline Hinson Carder (aka Polly Hinson Carder); and A Study of Oratorios and Sacred Cantatas Composed in America Before 1900 (1954) by Ralph McVety Kent. Both are available from UMI Dissertation Services.

He is best known for the songs The Hazel Dell (1853), Rosalie the Prairie Flower (1855), Departed Days (1857), There's Music in the Air (1857), Flee As a Bird (arr. 1857), The Vacant Chair, or, We Shall Meet But We Shall Miss Him (1861), The Battle Cry of Freedom (1862), Just Before the Battle, Mother (1864), Tramp! Tramp! Tramp!, or, The Prisoner's Hope (1864), Farewell Father, Friend and Guardian (1865), Blaine for Our President (1884), and The Plumed Knight (1884).
