GENERAL WAYNE'S MARCH. American, March (whole time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears in Samuel Holyoke's Instrumental Assistant (Albany, 1800). General "Mad" Anthony Wayne was a hero of the Revolutionary War and was the commander selected by President George Washington to quell Indian unrest and punish the tribes of the Mohawk and Ohio Valleys in 1792. For the original British version of the tune, albeit distanced from the one printed by Holyoke, see "Tom Tollins." See also another, different, march called "General Wayne's New March," which appeared in Benjamin Carr's Military Amusement (New York, Philadelphia, 1796, p. 18).
