Program Notes

Charles Parker dedicated this march to the American Legion, an organization of American veterans which was incorporated by Act of Congress in 1919. Originally composed of veterans of World War I, the organization now includes personnel who have served their country in all subsequent military conflicts. The veterans in the present organization hope to continue their comradeship and to also honor the memory of their dead. Since its founding, the Legion has worked to provide compensation and hospital care for its members and has encouraged good citizenship by sponsoring numerous organizations for young people, including bands and drum and bugle corps.

Although Parker was reported to have written many works, this is his only published work. The style and scoring of this very playable march denote a composer with considerable writing experience, hardly a "one-march" composer.
