[STC00787] Although the history of “Yankee Doodle” is not entirely clear, its meteoric rise to fame during the French and Indian War in 1755 is a well-documented fact. The British used it as a way to make fun of New England soldiers, essentially characterizing them as inadequately armed and poorly dressed — “he stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni.” — and they did so by adopting the phrase. It is reported that the song helped improve morale among American troops when they were fighting in the battle and that they proudly sang it during the conflict. What exactly is this’s connection to the state of Connecticut? That isn’t entirely transparent to me. After it was adopted as the state’s official song in 1978, many residents balked, with one particularly vocal one stating: ‘The words of ‘Yankee Doodle’ have nothing whatsoever to do with our state.’ Despite this, it is still considered to be the official state song.
