The folksong, Marching to Pretoria probably dates from around 1902. The song comes from the Second Anglo-Boer war and is sung from a patriotic perspective.

                 It is an update of an 1865 American Civil War marching song 'Marching through Georgia', a ditty about Sherman's 'March to the Sea', intending to frighten the civilian population into abandoning the Confederacy.Sherman's troops burnt the houses of those resisting.
