First composed as a piano solo in 1885, Frank W. Meacham's popular march, American Patrol, was later arranged for wind band, from which this arrangement was based. A swing version arranged by Jerry Gray made popular by Glenn Miller’s Orchestra is perhaps the version that is most well-known today. In addition to original melodies, Meacham works in a variety of American patriotic songs of the era.
