Dmitri Gheorgheni - Not Banned in China

FWR complained about the cabbage white video, so it's his fault.

Here is the Cabbage White Polka, aka 'Stay Out of My Halupke':

I arranged the melody from a polka tune I found in a flute book by Septimus Winner. He really needs a guide entry. Winner was jailed for treason for songwriting in 1862. See, Lincoln fired General McClellan - for very good reasons. But the general was popular, and his supporters bought 80,000 copies of Winner's pro-McClellan song in two days.

The song 'Give Us Back Our Old Commander: Little Mac, the People's Pride' was also used as a campaign song for McClellan in 1864. Little Mac lost, thank the Lord, or else there would still be a Confederacy. They revamped the song again for Ulysses S Grant's campaign.

It's a good thing they let Winner out of jail, so he could write more band arrangements (for 23 instruments) and more songs. He wrote the hymn 'Whispering Hope' under the pseudonym 'Alice Hawthorne'.

Not bad for a self-taught musician.
