Stars and Stripes Forever

Washington’s own John Philip Sousa gave America so many of its patriotic tunes. It is meet and right to honor him on the American civic holiday. Here is his “Stars and Stripes Forever.”

Perhaps, it is due to national chauvinism, but American military marches seem so much cheerful than other countries’ tunes. If so, we can thank Sousa.
