Notes
Composed in 1881. "The only two marches Sousa dedicated to presidents of the 
United States were composed for James A. Garfield, and they marked the beginning 
and end of his short tenure of office. The first was the stately 'President 
Garfield's Inauguration March,' which bears the inscription Opus 131. It was 
first performed by the U.S. Marine Band, with Sousa conducting, at the 
inauguratin ceremonies on March 4, 1881. The second march honoring President 
Garfield was 'In Memoriam.'"
