Annie Martin (1855-1889) was part of a group of 26 girls who participated in Solon Wilder's floral concert on Monday, July 2, 1866. They sang a song that began "Pretty little zephyrs we, Swiftly through the air we bound, Throwing blossoms all around," as they threw flower petals into the air.Show Details
