SHEET MUSIC

Much like today's political candidates that use television commercials to reach the voting public, campaigns of the 19th and early 20th century employed music to draw supporters. "The martial music and images…appeal[ed] to patriotic, emotional reflexes rather than the intellect of the electorate" (Melder p. 28). Roosevelt was a perfect subject for such music.
