BONAPARTE CROSSING THE RHINE . AKA and see "Bonaparte Crossing the Alps," "Bonaparte Crossing the Rocky Mountains," "Bonaparte's March (3)," "First Light of Day," "From Galway to Dublin," "From Galway to Dublin Town," "Listowel Hornpipe." March (4/4 time). A Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (O'Neill): AABB (Howe). The tune is also the vehicle for numerous songs: researcher Conor Ward finds two as "The Potato" and "Let Mr. McGuire sit down." "Jerry Daly's Hornpipe (2)" has melodic and form (AABA phrasing) similiarities. "Bonaparte Crossing the Rhine (2)" was entered into the music copybooks of American musician M.E. Eames (probably Philadelphia, frontispiece dated Aug. 22nd, 1859, p. 178), and H. Canfield (Hartford, Ct., 1823, p. 129). See also note for "Murillo's Lesson."
