Hi Mary, welcome to our forum.  On songs like Battle Hymn, I will often play single notes and do some chording to provide a little variation and different color.  I am sure however you play it, will be excellent.  It's great that you are a beginning player and you're tongue blocking.

I'm a beginner harmonica player & I'm working on Battle Hymn of the Republic for a veteran's program. I can do it but I'm not sure if I should tongue block completely to get single notes for the entire song or use 2 or more notes for a fuller sound. How do you decide what sound(s) to make?

Eager to learn,
