Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Gown of Green
The inclusion of references to the American Revolutionary War (apparently- date 1780-1812 for one broadside at the Bodleian) suggests that for topical purposes two songs may have been put together. Haven't checked yet the 17th c. songs to see if a war is referred to there.
