The Mississippi Rag
The Mississippi Rag is an early example of two-step ragtime that was partially responsible for the popularity of ragtime music in the early 1900s. It was composed in 1897 by William Krell. The song's structure is in the form of a patrol march, and some critics consider it a cakewalk.
