Finally, we have a tune with a history to play as we work to replace the rogues from both political parties at all levels of government and vote them out.............

The melody of the following MP3 arrangement was a well known tune used by the American army during the Revolution. The tune was known as "The Rogue's March" and was played when military and/or civil rogues, criminals, offenders and various undesirable characters were drummed from camps and cantonments. Sometimes the rogue(s) would be marched about with a halter around their necks, and usually with the final disgrace of a farewell ritual kick in the butt from the youngest drummer.

Some historians say that the actual ceremony was quite impressive. It apparently consisted of the largest number of
drummers and fifers possible to muster. The prisoner or offender would be paraded in front of the loud band while the Rogue's March was played all the while, and marched all the way to the entrance of the camp. The rogue(s) coat would be worn inside out as a sign of disgrace, and his hands were bound behind
him as he was marched to the entrance and evicted with instructions never to return to the area again.

And to make matters public, the sentence would then be published in a local newspaper for all to read and talk about.
The history of the tune is a bit vague but it appears in common use for the above purpose in late 18th century, although it is very likely that the tune, with its association, had been in use in various forms long before that time.



Listen to our MP3 version of The Rogue's March, and work for the day when we can see the rogues in government on all levels marching on their way out.......
