John Philip Sousa
03/03/2019

John Philip Sousa

March 3 is the anniversary of the adoption of the "Star Spangled Banner' as our national anthem.

In 1918, the members of the Maryland Society, United States Daughters of 1812 led the campaign for the official recognition for The Star-Spangled Banner. Their leader was Mrs. Ruben Ross Holloway. The organization chose representative Charles Lithicum from Maryland as their spokesman in Congress. It turned out to be a long fight in Congress but finally the bill was passed and signed into law by President Herbert Hoover on March 3, 1931 .

While on tour in 1930, Sousa was asked to prepare his opinion on the national anthem

This is the complete text:
"Contests to obtain a new national anthem to supplant “The Star-Spangled Banner” should give little worry to those who love the soul-stirring song written by Francis Scott Key.

When I was Director of the United States Marine Band, they was a concerted effort to establish a new national anthem. Because of my position with the Marine Band, I was told that I should do my share by entering the competition. Three very eminent judges considered the contributions of the contestants. I entered the contest, but I didn’t get the prize. Some time later I met the author of the poem who was awarded the prize, and he told me that he hadn’t sold a copy of his song. What I want to point out is that no matter how distinguished the judges maybe, they cannot judge for the people at large.

It is true that James Whitcomb Riley’s America is quite suitable for anthem. I wrote the music for this poem. It has been very popular, but it has never once threatened "The Star-Spangled Banner."

There has been at times criticism that Americans do not know the words of their national anthem. In reply let me ask how many nations no more than the first few lines of their national song? And what does it matter? It is the spirit of the music that inspires.

There are others who assert that our anthem is not suitable for march music. This is not true. “The Star-Spangled Banner” makes splendid march music. No matter how many critics are handsome may have, none of them can dispute the fact that it was a very satisfactory anthem during the world war played an important part in arousing enthusiasm and patriotism.

It would be as easy to make a stream run uphill as to secure a new national anthem as the result of a prize contest. The only possible chance that we might have a new national anthem would be when the eyes of all Americans are directed towards some particular cause and another genius captures the spirit of the moment in a thrilling song of patriotism. Until that time I do not believe the veneration for Francis Scott Key’s anthem will ever be displaced.”
