Anna Goodwin

b. 1875

Anna Gardner Goodwin is listed in the 1900 U.S. Census Records as "Anne G. Goodwin, black, born in October 1874, wife of clergyman George Goodwin and mother of four-year-old George Jr., residing in Augusta, Georgia." Her Cuban Liberty March, commemorating the Cuban struggle for independence from Spain, is one of three of her compositions published in Georgia and now located in the Library of Congress. In it one can hear imitations of typical marching band instrumentation: the oom-pah of the tubas; sustained trombone melodies; and clang of the cymbals.
