Program Notes

Fillmore dedicated this march "To the President, Warren G. Harding, and his staunch Loyalists" in 1921, the year Harding became the 29th president of the United States. Harding had played alto horn in his hometown band of Caledonia and later, in Marion, Ohio, where his family moved. He also enjoyed boxing, motoring, fishing, baseball, card playing and golfing. His high school popularity continued into adulthood, and he was elected to the state senate in 1898 and to the U.S. Congress as a senator in 1914. In 1920 the "small-town hero" took advantage of the American mood against the restrictions of the war years and ran a successful campaign for the nation's highest office. His popularity in that office was tarnished after two of his political appointees were convicted of graft and sent to prison. In an effort to regain the confidence of the populace in himself and his Republican Party members, Harding undertook a rigorous speaking schedule which left him completely exhausted. A stroke followed, and he died in August 1923.
