Would anyone happen to know the names of two historic tunes (fifth and drum) in the Revolutionary War? I linked the descriptions below:

    First one is "Yankee Doodle Dandy" - rather too basic for this site. – Pieter Geerkens Aug 30 at 22:50
  • Second one might be "Over there! Over ther!" though thee varying arrangement leaves me unsure. – Pieter Geerkens Aug 30 at 22:59

    @PieterGeerkens No, the first one is not "Yankee Doodle" but seems like Old 1812. – Turk Hill Aug 31 at 1:08

    Asking the content creator on youtube had no results? – Tom Sol Aug 31 at 8:16

    @PieterGeerkens, the first one might be a relative of "Yankee Doodle" -- the tune is far older than the modern lyrics, dating back possibly as far as medieval times. – Mark Sep 4 at 2:33
