A manuscript version of guitarist Henry Worrall's celebrated guitar instrumental "Sebastopol." Worrall initially published "Sebastopol" in the 1850s with W. C. Peters and Sons of Cincinnati, Ohio. Included among Worrall's surviving music manuscripts are these manuscript editions of the introduction and finale to "Sebastopol." In the early twentieth century, Worrall's popular guitar instrumentals played a key role in the development of the guitar styles of southern rural folk musicians and country and blues musical idioms. Worrall moved to Topeka, Kansas, in 1868 where he died in 1902.
