Daniels respectfully dedicated The Crimson Banner to the "Men of Harvard". It is a stirring march in AABBACCCC form with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude between the CC-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. The following lyrics are given for bars 53-83:
We will float the Crimson Banner throughout the globe in every land.
For the noble sons of Harvard stand together hand in hand.
We lead where none dare to follow, conquer with brain and brawn.
The noble sons of Harvard with the Crimson Banner for our song.
The letters H A V A R D are spelled out in bars 97-100. Great stuff indeed!
The Crimson Banner was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
