Steinbeck's use of this title came from a suggestion his wife gave him....... the words come from a Biblical reference in the Book of Revelation (Chapter 14:19-20), and are also used in the Battle Hymn of the Republic. These words are a direct reference to oppression (written in regards to the Civil War), but were also an apt description of the migrant workers during this time.
