JOHNSON'S IMPEACHMENT. American, Reel. USA, southwestern Pa. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABCC'. Bayard (1981) identifies this as an American composition, based (at least in the first part) on "Hell on the Potomac" or "Wake Up Susan (1)". He also suggests it may be a recombination of other (Irish) elements, perhaps or not the work of his source's teacher Browning.

Source for notated version: Walter Neal (fiddler from Pa., 1952; learned from Abel Browning) [Bayard].

Printed sources: Bayard (Dance to the Fiddle), 1981; No. 227, p. 185.
