Someone found and put together all the footage they could find if his performances.
Some of the footage, especially at the start, is pretty bad but it get better.
Lots of stuff I'd never heard before. A few repeated numbers.
Enjoy:

His songs often told the stories of the history of the man or the event. John Paul Jones, Jim Bridger, Lincoln and others. The first of his songs that seems to always hang in my head is "Sink the Bismarck". He did a whole bunch of Western related theme songs as well. I for one miss his voice it reminds me of better times.

Likewise, I always appreciated Johnny Horton and his choice of historical American heroes in song. Among my favourites were “Comanche”, “Jim Bridger”, “Johnny Reb” and of course his recording of “Sink the Bismarck” which was quite unique from his usual Americana style. Thank you for the link, it was very enjoyable to get them all in one place.

I always liked his "Battle of New Orleans". Apologies to Pedro.
