The Daughter of the Regiment is a bright and breezy patriotic march two step. The brave lass herself is depicted on the cover of the original sheet music as a no-nonsense young lady in cavalry attire. The piece's form is AABBACCCC with an 8-bar introduction and an 8-bar interlude between the CC strains. The final CC strains are provided with the following stirring martial lyrics:

She is the daughter of the regiment, a friend to one and all.
She is the guardian of the field and tent, a noble friend when duty calls.
When the battle's done and victory's won, the shell and fire are spent,
You'll find her there, each joy to share, the daughter of the regiment.

There is no apparent connection, other than the title, to the same-named opera by Donizetti.
The Daughter of the Regiment was published by Whitney-Warner Publishing Co., Detroit, Michigan, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
