Union March

Click for image enlargement
An illustrated sheet music cover for a Unionist song by Hans Krummacher, dedicated to Maryland Democratic senator James Alfred Pearce. The cover is adorned with a drawing of the goddess Hebe, the mythological Greek goddess of youth and cup-bearer of Zeus. Here Zeus is present as an eagle grasping flaming thunderbolts in its talons. (See Edward Savage's "Liberty in the Form of the Goddess of Youth," no. 1796-2, for an earlier pairing of Hebe with the Jovian eagle.) With her right arm around the eagle, Hebe pours a libation from an ornate golden cup. Surrounding the vignette is a floral wreath. Two doves and a flaming urn appear below.
