CLUE: John Steinbeck called this “one of the great songs of the world” & wanted the music & lyrics printed in one of his novels
ANSWER: The Battle Hymn of the Republic
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Monday, 6 November 2023
John Steinbeck deemed “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” as a monumental piece of music and expressed a wish to incorporate its music and words into “The Grapes of Wrath,” his renowned novel. The song’s verses, penned by Julia Ward Howe in the early days of the Civil War, were made public in The Atlantic Monthly in 1862, set to the melody of “Say, Brothers, Will You Meet Us,” a tune linked with the fight against slavery.
Steinbeck’s novel, set amid the tribulations of the Great Depression and the environmental disaster known as the Dust Bowl, echoes the enduring spirit and aspirations embedded in the “Battle Hymn.” It captures the plight and resilience of the Joad family and others uprooted and seeking sustenance, paralleling the determination and hope for justice that the song evoked among Union troops during the Civil War.

Final Jeopardy Video – Monday, 6 November 2023
Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
