The French National Defile March (Le Regiment de Sambre et Meuse) was originally a poem written in 1870 by Paul Cezano in the wake of the Franco-Prussian War and the first days of France's Third Republic, and was referenced to the Army of Sambre-et-Meuse. The music was written in 1871 by Jean Robert Planquette, and was originally arranged as a march by Joseph Francois Rauski. The American version of the march was written by Andre Turlet. The French National Defile March has been played in many football games in the United States, especially with the Marching Band of THE Ohio State University as they execute their "Script Ohio" formation (complete with one tuba player "dotting the 'I'").
