Music Sheet, "Ford's Grand March and Two-Step," 1925

Summary

Over the years, Henry Ford received hundreds of gifts from people who felt a connection with the automotive entrepreneur. For many, he was "one of them," someone who also just happened to become a great industrialist. This composition was inspired at a time when Henry Ford was attempting to regenerate interest in the pastime of early American dance.
