|notes||"Major General U.S. Grant's Grand March" was written in honor of General Grant and is a good example of the composer's style. The piece is not actually a grand march, but rather a typical 6/8 march in the regular form that became established around the middle of the 19th century. It is pure fun for bands to play.|
