Notes: Marching Through Georgia was written by Henry Clay Work in 1865 to celebrate the Union "March to the Sea" led U.S. Major General William Tecumseh Sherman from November 15, 1864 to December 21, 1864 culminating in the capture of the Port of Savannah. Mark recorded Marching Through Georgia with Emory Lester for the CD, Acoustic Rising, released on the Mountain Home label in 2006. On the CD, Mark told me, he placed a capo on the 5th fret of his banjo tuned in double C (gCGCD) raising the banjo's pitch to the key of F. To make my job of transcribing this tune into tab easier, I asked Mark to play without the capo.
