This sheet music for the song “The Maine’s Avenger: A March Dedicated to Commodore George Dewey” was written by E.A. Couturier in 1898, and featured in “New York Herald” on Sunday, May 8, 1898. Couturier was noted as the conductor of Gilmore’s Band. The sinking of the U.S.S.

One such engagement was the Battle of Manila Bay, a decisive American victory in the Philippines that was led by Commodore George Dewey, who was hailed as a hero.
