“Gen'l Morgan's Grand March” Sheet Music

Description (Brief)
This sheet music is for the song, “General Morgan’s Grand March.” The song was written and composed by CL. Peticolas, and published by George Dunn & Company of Richmond, Virginia in 1864. The song was extolling General John Hunt Morgan’s raid into Indiana and Ohio in 1863. While a sensational story, the excursion did not significantly impact the Union’s ability to wage war, and was a tactical loss for Morgan. The song was dedicated to the Officers and Privates under Morgan’s command, and interestingly the sheet music was entered “in the Clerk’s Office of the District Court of the Confederate States of America.”
