Happy Presidents Day, 2016!
To celebrate Presidents Day (or is it Presidents' Day?), here are five 78s from my collection that do the job. All ripped and edited by me using MAGIX Audio Cleaner MX.
George M. Cohan's Father of the Land We Love was written in 1932 (the sheet music states, "To Commemorate the Two Hundredth Anniversary of the Birth of George Washington"--see comments); Lee Sanford's Lincoln Centennial March in 1909; and William H. Woodin's Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933, the same year Woodin served as Roosevelt's Secretary of the Treasury! How about that?
