The historic March to the Sea was led by General Sherman, the US Federal commander in the West during the Civil War.  That's the American Civil War, of course, not ours.  Sherman captured Savannah in September 1864 and then moved North through the Carolinas .  Presumably this is why they called the tank after him.

Julius Caesar was assassinated by republicans on the 15th March, 44 .

John Philip Sousa  wrote military marches, including “The Stars and Stripes Forever,” “The Washington Post,” and “Liberty Bell”.  He also invented the sousaphone,

The “Radetzky March” was composed by Johann Strauss the Elder.  Nothing to do with Sousa at all.

The Long March was led by Mao Tse-tung in 1934–35.  Over 100,000 people started the 10,000 km march, but only about 30,000 survived it.  Do not confuse the Long March with the March to the Sea.  The March to the Sea was much shorter.


That come before the swallow dares, and take

The winds of March with beauty.

William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale

When angry, count four; when very angry, swear.

Mark Twain, Pudd’nhead Wilson’s Calendar, March
