Louis Moreau Gottschalk (May 8, 1829 – December 18, 1869)

The music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk presaged the ragtime of Scott Joplin and other African American musicians. "The Great Galloping Gottschalk" was a superlative showman, traveling the world with his flamboyant musical spectaculars. One of his works, Night in the Tropics, was designed to be performed by eighty pianists on forty pianos. Gottschalk’s primary relationships, both sexually and emotionally, were with men, and a 1994 biography establishes him as homosexual. He was interred at the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. His burial spot was originally marked by a magnificent marble monument, topped by an "Angel of Music" statue, which was irreparably damaged by vandals in 1959. The Green-Wood Cemetery is seeking donations to restore the monument in his honor, the cost of which they estimate at $200,000.
