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



Many thanks.

    First one is "Yankee Doodle Dandy" - rather too basic for this site. Aug 30 '20 at 22:50
  • Second one might be "Over there! Over ther!" though thee varying arrangement leaves me unsure. Aug 30 '20 at 22:59

    @PieterGeerkens No, the first one is not "Yankee Doodle" but seems like Old 1812.

    Asking the content creator on youtube had no results?

    @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.
