The Rifle Regiment March
The Rifle Regiment March from The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa: Vol. 2


“The Rifle Regiment” (1886)


According to an inscription on the printed music, this march was dedicated to the officers and men of the 3rd U.S. Infantry. Although different from Sousa’s other marches in musical format, it is regarded as one of his better efforts.
