The cover of the Lawrence Quick Step shows the encampment of the New England Guards in Barnstable, Massachusetts, in September 1839.  The pleasant seaside location has drawn a crowd of visitors; men and women converse and stroll in the enclosure, while a group of boys play close to the tents. The music is dedicated to S. Abbott Lawrence, commander of the Guards.
