March, “Powhatan’s Daughter" (1907)

This was the march that first endeared Sousa to the Indians of America. It was a salute to Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powhatan, and was written for the Jamestown Exposition of 1907. This exposition marked the three hundredth anniversary of the first English settlement in America.
