Contrary to American legend, George Washington’s teeth were not made of wood! The march is introduced with a revolutionary-flavor fife and drum sound followed by the form of a typical march. Since it is rather difficult to find percussion instruments manufactured from hippo ivory these days, George Washington’s choppers will be musically represented by the wood block, thus perpetuating the erroneous notion that the false teeth of our founding father were made of wood.
