Hero of the Isthmus is a fine perky military march which Lampe respectfully dedicated to Colonel George W. Goethals, Chief Engineer Panama Canal. Quoting from The Cambridge Biographical Encyclopedia, George Washington Goethals (1858-1928) was an engineer born in New York. He trained at West Point and became an engineer, working on the construction of canals, harbours and other installations. He was appointed chief engineer for the construction of the Panama Canal (1907-1914) and, on the opening of the Canal, the first civil govenor of the Canal Zone (1914-1916).
The front cover of the original sheet music depicts two stalwart soldiers crossing swords above the head of the gallant Hero.
Hero of the Isthmus was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
