Program Notes

This march grew from Sousa’s 1890 song, Nail the Flag to the Mast, the lyrics being a poem by William Russell Frisbe. Sousa deleted the words, modified the melody and rhythm, added a change of key, and shortened it. The result was a march for piano called Columbia’s Pride, which he apparently never arranged for band or orchestra.
