Composed in 1881. "The  Yorktown (Virginia) Centennial was held to commemorate 
the hundredth anniversary of the last important battle of the Revolutionary War: 
the surrender at Yorktown. Sousa, then leader of the U.S. Marine Band, composed 
this march for the event and dedicated it to Colonel H.C. Corbin, master of 
ceremonies of the centennial. 
    "Another printing of the same march was issued in 1900 as 'Sen Sen.' This 
was part of a promotion scheme of the T.B. Dunn Company of Rochester, New York, 
a subsidiary of the Sen Sen Chicklet Company. It is not known whether or not 
Sousa was a part of this business venture."
