Napoleon Crossing the Rhine
Back to Napoleon Crossing the Rhine
NAPOLEON CROSSING THE RHINE. AKA and see "Bonaparte Crossing the Rhine (1)," "Bonaparte Crossing the Alps," "Bonaparte's Retreat (5)," "Napoleon Crossing the Alps (1)." American, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Bayard (1944) identifies this tune as belonging to "Blackbird (1) (The)" tune family (see his extensive note for that tune at "Blackbird (1) (The)"). If so, it seems to be a more distant relation.
