Amazing Drum and Fife Manuscripts Found

Reader and Contributor Will Chappell writes:

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:

Three Camps, Reveille, Slow Scotch, Austrian, Tin Kettle


and

Hessian, Dutch, Quick Scotch, Yankee Doodle, National Air


Not much drumming but there is a drumbeat for Old Dan Tucker, which apparently was used for Supper Call.

Courtesy of Rob Martin, by way of Jim Moffet, to Ed Fredriks, to me [Will Chappell].

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...

Enjoy!
