Drummers and fifers-
This is a huge discovery...manuscripts from Sgt. Henke and Sgt. Moore, who were instructors at Gov. Island for many years. I am going to see if Ken Barlow can post these to fifedrum.org. 28 megs total. Here are the first 2 pages:
Not much drumming but there is a drumbeat for Old Dan Tucker, which apparently was used for Supper Call.

Please forward this to others. I am going through my 3 email accounts and sending this to everyone I have corresponded with regarding drum and fife over the years.
After a quick glance, it looks like the reveille is very close to Strube...
