Ticonderoga is the only work that Leroy Anderson composed exclusively for band, which is certainly odd given his beginnings as a bandmaster at Harvard. First sketched in 1939, the piece was scored and published in 1945. The first edition had no full score, a condensed score being not only faster but also the tradition of the time. This edition of the march changes none of Anderson's music or scoring but does provide for the first time a full score for the convenience of the conductor.
