On July 4, 1910 Jack Johnson successfully defended his heavyweight title against Jim Jeffries, the former champion. Jeffries had retired undefeated champion after his last fight in 1904. Encouraged greatly by a racist public eager to get rid of Jack Johnson, Jeffries agreed to fight Johnson, but age and an almost six year lay-off, coupled with Johnson's great skill and youth proved to be too much. Jeffries was easily defeated in a one sided match. Presented here is sheet music from 1910 for "Oh the Band Will Play" by Adele Louis.
This sheet music is 10 1/2" x 13 1/2" and pictures both fighters on the cover. There are 4 vertical creases where the sheet music was rolled and there are additional creases along the binding and edges.
