CORPS Photos

The Viscounts, formed in 1958, was a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in McHenry, Illinois. They were sponsored by the McHenry American Legion Post 491. The corps appears to be an indirect descendant of the Skokie Indians.

The corps won the S.A.L. (Sons of the American Legion) State Championship in 1961 and 1963, and took the national S.A.L. Championship in 1961. They sponsored the annual Drum Corps Magic and Fiesta Day Parade. Corps colors were blue and black.

The Vikings from Bensenville merged with the Viscounts of McHenry to form the Viking-Viscounts in 1967. This group finished third in the Illinois State Championships that year. The corps disbanded in the early 1970s.
