BONAPARTE'S MARCH [1]. English, March. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. William Litten's collection was made at sea during the years 1800-1802. Litten was apparently a ship's fiddler for a British vessel of the East India Fleet, although his nationality is not known. His manuscript collection ended up on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, where it had been brought by a seaman named Allan Coffin, of Edgartown, who may have been a shipmate of Litten's.
