Re: The Centennial

The key for X:2 is B flat, not the relative minor, Gmin (both have two flats in the key signature so the sound is the same)
I presume the transposition to B flat is to fit the tune into violin first position and avoid the stretch, or jump to third, to get the high C.

Re: The Centennial

I should have added, this is a delightful tune. Thanks, Sam, for posting it.
