    Civil War Patriotic Sheet Music: Two Colorful Examples. 1) Large format (13.25" x 10.5") sheet music titled "Ellsworth Cadets Polka", published in 1862 by William F. Duffy of Wilmington, Delaware. Vibrant chromolithograph cover featuring seven members of this unit, four of whom are in Zouave uniforms. Disbound, complete at 8 pp., faint damp stain. 2) Large format (10.25" x 13.25") sheet music titled "Parade March of the 22d. Regt. N.Y.S.M. Union-Greys", composed by F. B. Helmsm├╝ller, published in 1862 by Firth, Son & Company of New York, chromolithograph cover by Sarony & Major. Disbound, complete at 8 pp., faint damp stain at very top.
