"The Stars and Stripes Forever"

John Philip Sousa penned "The Stars and Stripes Forever" on Christmas Day 1896. It was unnamed during its first public playing in Augusta, Maine, but at a Philadelphia concert on May 14, 1897, it was listed as the "Stars and Stripes Forever." The press gave it rave reviews.
