    • The entry for this cob in this Cobography previously gave the date of the piece as 1863. This is clearly incorrect, however, as there is a copy of sheet music for the piece with a copyright date of 1856 in the Historic American Sheet Music Collection in the Duke University Digital Collections. This copy may be viewed online at repository.duke.edu. (Corrected by R.D., 4/3/21)
