Election Day

Share this post:

"Vote for the Right Man" by Emma A Parker and Harry Jay. Staten Island: Emma A. Parker, 1920.

The Music Division encourages stateside readers to exercise their right to vote. Today’s political climate may appear contentious, but perhaps a look at the campaign songs of elections past will put things into perspective.  If past is prelude, come preview the next campaign season with a collection of Presidental Campaign Songs in the Performing Arts Encyclopedia. May the best person win!
