John Sousa was born American in 1854 and he died in 1932.
He became the world's most famous Military Bandmaster. When he left the Army he formed a band of his own and toured the world delighting everyone with his smart tone and bright rhythm.
He said that a march "should make a man with a wooden leg step out" and the stirring Marches he composed would have made good marchers out of a wooden-legged regiment.
Among his more famous works are The Stars and Stripes Forever and The Washington Post.
