Program Notes

This march takes its title from the emblem of the U.S. Marine Corps. It was one of several military titles curiously chosen by Sousa while he was an orchestra conductor in Philadelphia. He might possibly have been bidding for the position of leader of the Marine Band, knowing that the leader at that time was about to be replaced.
