Thread Name: Songs of the civil War
Subject: RE: Songs of the Napoleonic Wars?
We do a song concerning the Napoleonic wars that appears not to have been covered but is to be found in the Bodleian Library. It is "Elwina of Waterloo". It descibes how an injured soldier is tended on the battlefield by Edwina, a beautiful girl, and she subsequently becomes his wife and resides in "quiet contentment" back home.
