March "Solid Men to the Front" (1918)

Although this World War I march has not been as popular as several other Sousa compositions of that era, it is regarded by scholars as one of his better efforts. The title first appeared on the manuscript of the march known as “Wisconsin Forward Forever” but was subsequently used for this march.
