Leviathan March composition

Contributed by Portland Public Library

An original copy of Hermann Kotzschmar's piano composition "The Leviathan March" published in 1858.

In 1856 the Leviathan, world's largest ship, was supposed to come to Portland on her maiden voyage, and all sorts of preparations were made here, but the ship never came.
