The Rifle Regiment, composed by John Philip Sousa, was written and dedicated to the 3rd U.S. Infantry in 1886.

John Philip Sousa, known affectionately as "The March King", personified turn-of-the-century America, the comparative innocence and brash energy of a still new nation. His ever-touring band represented America across the globe and brought music to hundreds of American towns.
