|notes||The "New York Light Guards Quickstep" was published in 1839 "as performed by Dodsworth's Brass Band"—one of the most famous of its time. It was, in fact, the leading band in and around New York until the Civil War. This is an actual drill piece for the Guards unit and an American band classic.|
This work is part of The Bicentennial Musical Celebration published by JCPenney in 1975. More information and program notes are available from the original program booklets.
