Original sheet music for American Patrol, by Frank White Meacham (1856-1909). The March was immensely popular, incorporating melodies from American patriotic songs such as 'Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean', 'Dixie', and 'Yankee Doodle'. The illustrated cover features a US Warship sailing through the ocean towards the viewer, with a cloud of smoke behind it, and the American flag with an eagle above. The main image is flanked by drawings of sailor and a soldier, with the title in stylised blue font. The back cover features the music to 'Blue Birds Hesitation Waltz' by Abe Oleman.
